Description of key information

Hydrolysis is not considered as a relevant degradation pathway. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of (EC) No. 1907/2006 Annex VIII the testing on hydrolytic degradation is not required if the substance is readily biodegradable.Fatty acids, C16-18 (even numbered) and C18-unsatd., branched and linear, di- and triesters with trimethylolpropane (former CAS 85005-23-8)is readily biodegradable. Furthermore, an expert statement forFatty acids, C16-18 (even numbered) and C18-unsatd., branched and linear, di- and triesters with trimethylolpropane (former CAS 85005-23-8)is available, indicating that a study is even technically not feasible due to the low water solubility. In conclusion, hydrolysis is not considered as a relevant degradation pathway.
