Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Experimental studies investigating the abiotic hydrolysis of Fatty acids, soya, 2-ethylhexyl esters (CAS 93572-14-6) are not available. However, in accordance with Annex VIII, column 2, 9.2.2.1. of Regulation (EC) 1907/2006, testing is not required since the substance is readily biodegradable.QSAR calculations for the main components conducted with HYDROWIN v2.00 resulted in half-lives of 14.15 years at pH 7 and 1.41 years at pH 8 respectively (Birkhofer, 2014). The calculated half-lives indicate that hydrolysis is not relevant for the substance.
