Description of key information

The substance is readily biodegradable, thus no further testing required.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Based on a category approach ready biodegradation for the test substance is demonstrated by read-across to hydrocarbons, C6-C7, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <5% n-hexane. Therefore, according to REACh legislation, Annex IX,, column 2, no further degradation testing is required.
