Additional information

Abiotic degradation is not a relevant pathway for 2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediyl dioctanoate (CAS No. 31335-74-7). Since the substance is not likely to be present in the atmosphere based on the low vapour pressure (VP 0.0000289 Pa at 20°C, SPARC v4.6), indirect photolysis is not to be expected. Abiotic hydrolysis is not relevant, since the substance is readily biodegradable and is expected to be eliminated through biodegradation in natural waters.
