The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Additional information

Studies are available for ready biodegradability and adsorption of phenylethyl acetate. In a 28 -day OECD 301F study the test substance was found to be 72% degraded and thus is considered to be readily biodegradable. An OECD 121 HPLC adsorption screening study found that the log Koc of the substance was 1.91 (Koc= 80.9). This indicates that phenylethyl acetate will be highly mobile in soil. Bioaccumulation studies were not considered necessary as the substance has a low potential fow accumulation (log Kow= 2.4) and further studies on degradation were not required as the substance was already shown to be readily biodegradable.
