Additional information

Considering the low water solubility (< 1 mg/L) and negligible volatilization potential (vapour pressure, ≤ 0.96 Paat 20°C) of Fatty acids, C12-16 (even numbered) and C18-unstd., methyl esters (CAS No. 1234694-02-0), in combination with its potential for adsorption to solid particles (log Koc 3.7-4.1), the substance will tend to be mainly distributed into the soil and sediment compartments. Nevertheless, due to its ready biodegradability, persistence of Fatty acids, C12-16 (even numbered) and C18 unstd., methyl esters in these compartments is not expected.
