Description of key information

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of Annex IX, no experimental study needs to be conducted if the substance has a low potential for adsorption. The log Kow of 2.9 for 2 -Ethylhexanol (Perstorp, 2010) indicates a low potential for adsorption. In addition the substance is readily biodegradable (NITE, 2002).

In order to derive PNECs for sediment and soil by equilibrium partitioning, and to model exposures of these compartments (via CHESAR) , the Koc value of 131.1 L/kg will be used.

No further data on environmental transport and distribution are available or needed for 2 -ethylhexanol.
