Ethyl-(S)-lactate has an atmospheric half-life of 2.6 days due to OH
Hydrolysis does not need to be investigated since ethyl lactate is
assessed to be readily biodegradable.
Ethyl-(S)-lactate is assessed as readily biodegradable. Further
degradation tests (in surface water, sediment, or soil) do not need to
Based on (bio)degradability, aqueous solubility and log Kow,
ethyl-(S)-lactate will not bioconcentrate.
Transport and distribution:
In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annexes XIII and IX, points 9.3.1
and 9.3.3, an adsorption/desorption study does not need to be conducted
if, based on the physicochemical properties, the substance can be
expected to have a low potential for adsorption (e.g. the substance has
a low octanol-water partition coefficient).The
log partition coefficient of the test substance was predicted to be
0.31. Therefore, the test substance is considered to have low potential
for absorption and no further testing is required.
Law constant: Simple calculation of vapour pressure divided by aqueous
solubility gives a Henry's Law constant of 0.26 Pa m³/mol for
Distribution modelling: Ethyl-(S)-lactate will be mainly be distributed
to air (92 %).
