Description of key information

Readily biodegradable: 70.22%  (O2 consumption) in 28 days (OECD 301F)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

One study investigating the ready biodegradability of Diisooctyl adipate (CAS 1330-86-5) is available. The GLP study was conducted according to OECD 301F under aerobic conditions using non-adapted activated sludge, from a STP which predominately treats domestic sewage, as inoculum. Based on oxygen consumption a mean degradation of 70.22% was observed after 28 days and the 10-day window was passed. Hence, the substance can determined to be readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
