Description of key information

Additional information

A hydrolysis study is not available for the substance but amides, C16-C18 (even numbered) is highly insoluble in water and readily biodegradable, therefore hydrolysis is not expected to be an important process in the fate of the substance. Based on QSAR estimation for the components using SRC AOP v1.92, amides, C16-C18 (even numbered) is susceptible to indirect photodegradation in air. The estimated half time for the reaction with OH-radicals is 0.59-0.66 days (24 -hour day; 0.5E6 OH/cm3). If exposed to air, amides, C16-C18 (even numbered) will be rapidly degraded by indirect photodegradation.
