Additional information

Based on physico-chemical properties, the main target compartments for the environmental distribution of 2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediyl dioctanoate (CAS No. 31335-74-7) would be soil and sediment. However, as the substance is readily biodegradable and highly sorptive (log Koc > 3), it is expected to be eliminated in sewage treatment plants to a high extent. Release to surface waters, and thereby exposure of sediment, is therefore very unlikely. The substance is expected to be rapidly removed from the environment via biodegradation in all compartments.
