Additional information

Abiotic degradation is not a relevant pathway for 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, di-C16-18-alkyl esters (CAS 90193-76-3). Since the substance is not likely to be present in the atmosphere based on the low vapour pressure, indirect photolysis is not to be expected. Estimated hydrolysis half-lives > 1 yr (at pH 7), suggest that hydrolysis represents a negligible degradation pathway for this substance.
