Description of key information

Additional information

Alchisor CAL 145 comprises alkenes C13-14 hydroformylation products with read-across from the chemically-similar Alchisor CAL 123 as defined in the `Read-Across Justification Document'. Where environmental fate data exist for Alchisor CAL 123, these are representative of the Alchisor CAL 145 substance.

As stated in section 5.2.1, reliable studies have shown that the Alchisor CAL 123, Alkenes, C11-12, hydroformylation products, distn. residues and its constituent/constituent categories are all readily biodegradable in water. According to Annex IX Column 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 REACH concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals an absorption/desorption study does not need to be conducted if the substance and its relevant degradation products decompose rapidly.
