Description of key information

Additional information

Abiotic degradation of2-ethyl-2-[[(1-oxoheptyl)oxy]methyl]propane-1,3-diyl bisheptanoate (CAS 78-16-0) is not a relevant pathway. The structure of the substance would indicate that photodegradation might play a role as rapid degradation process. However, indirect photodegradation in air is not a relevant route since the substance is not likely to be present in the atmosphere due to the low vapor pressure. Hydrolysis is expected to be not relevant due to the ready biodegradability of the substance.
