Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

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
