Description of key information

A study of Phototransformation/Photolysis is not needed. Photodegradation in air has no relevance for the substances, as they are not volatile. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Due to the ionic structure of the TEA-Esterquats their vapour pressures are negligible. Therefore emissions to air are expected to be very low and the extent of photodegradation in air has no relevance for the environmental fate of this class of chemicals.
