Additional information

The relative densities D (4/20) of C8 -18 AAPB and C12 AAPB were determined to be 1.15 and 1.2, respectively. All AAPBs are similar in structure, contain all the same zwitterionic structure. They differ, however, by their carbon chain length distribution and the degree of unsaturation (<=20%) in the fatty acid moiety. The content of minor constituents in all products are comparable and differ to an irrelevant amount. Based on the available data, it can be assumed that chain length distribution and degree of unsaturation of the fatty acid chain have no or at the most a minor impact on this endpoint.
