Description of key information

Hydrocarbons, C12-C15, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics, biodegraded 71% after 28 days under the conditions of the study and is readily biodegradable.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Hydrocarbons, C12-C15, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, <2% aromatics has been tested in an OECD 301F (manometric respirometry) test conducted in compliance with GLP (Vryenhoef, 2014a). The test substance attained 71% biodegradation in 28 days and was therefore considered to be readily biodegradable. The result is considered to be reliable and is selected as key study.
