Description of key information

Hydrolysis is not relevant due to ready biodegradation.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental studies investigating the abiotic hydrolysis of fatty acids, C16-18, 2-octyldodecyl esters (CAS 96690-38-9) are available. However, in accordance with Annex VIII, column 2, 9.2.2.1. of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, testing is not required since the substance is readily biodegradable. In addition, a supporting QSAR calculation (HYDROWIN v2.00) indicates, that hydrolysis is a negligible pathway for the environmental fate of the test substance in the environment (DT50 > 1 yr (pH 7); Müller, 2011).
