Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Additional information

Parent compound: In contact with water, the substance will hydrolyse rapidly (t1/2 < 9.5 h) (BASF AG, 2006; Report No. 06E02795).

Hydrolysis product: Stearic acid: According to structural properties hydrolysis is not expected.

In air, stearic chloride is expected to be photodegraded by OH-radicals with a half-life of 15.9 h (BASF SE, 2009).This estimation refers to dry air. In mist, rain, droplets and aerosols hydrolysis will be the major fate process in air due to the short half-life in aqueous solutions.

Hydrolysis product: Stearic acid: A half-life of 17.1 h was calculated for the degradation in the atmosphere by OH-radicals (BASF SE, 2009).

No data are available on phototransformation in water or in soil.
