Description of key information

Ethyl (S)-lactate decomposes rapidly (readily biodegradable) and has as low octanol-water partition coefficient of log Pow = 0.31. As Ethyl (S)-lactate is neither surface active nor significantly ionizable, and other mechanisms driving adsorption could not be identified, its adsorption potential solely is based on the log Kow and thus regarded as low.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
