Description of key information

Additional information

Quaternary ammonium compounds, di-C16-18 (even numbered) -alkyldimethyl, chlorides is not expected to be abiotically degraded under environmental conditions based on its structure which does not contain any hydrolysable covalent bonds. Cleavage of a carbon-nitrogen bond under environmental conditions is only possible with a carbonyl group adjacent to the nitrogen atom. Degradation of Quaternary ammonium compounds, di-C16-18 (even numbered) -alkyldimethyl, chloridest hrough hydrolysis is therefore not considered.

Phototransformation in air/soil/water and sediment are not required under REACH.
