Description of key information

Ready biodegradation screening test:

EU Method C.4 -E (equivalent to OECD 301 D), test substance concentration 0.8 mg/L, ThOD 2.77 mg/mg TS/L: 83% biodegradation in 28 days; readily biodegradable (Currenta, 2010)

Inherent biodegradation screening test:

equivalent to OECD Guideline 302B, initial concentration 200 mg/L COD: 94.6% DOC removal in 5 days; inherently biodegradable (Pitter, 1976)

No further simulation tests are considered necessary, since thymol is readily biodegradable.
