Reference substance:
Ethyl hexanoate
PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

According to REACH, Annex XIII, 3.2.3, the test chemical is not P or vP, B or vB or T.

The test substance was identified as readily biodegradeable according to OECD 301 F and under GLP conditions. Thus the test substance is not persistent (P) or very persistent (vP).

The substance has a octanol water partition coefficient of 2.96 and does not meet the screening criterion for bioaccumulation. It is not bioaccumulative (B) or very bioaccumulative (vB).

No toxicologically-relevant effects were observed for aquatic organisms and in a combined repeated dose toxicity study with reproduction/developmental toxicity screening, therefore, the test substance was not identified as a STOT RE. It is not carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction or a STOT RE; therefore, it is not T.
