Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Category name:
Amines, ethoxylated (NLP) (PFAEO)

Justifications and discussions

Category definition:
The Primary Fatty Amine Ethoxylates Category are substances derived from Primary Fatty amines, ethoxylated with 1 - 4.5 mole ethylene oxide to form a tertiary amine structure, see example below. The structure varies mainly with the length of the fatty amine alkyl chain length. The phys-chem, fate and tox-and ecotoxicology properties are expected to vary in a predictable pattern based only on the variation in chain length.

Category rationale:
The boundaries of the category defined here is for the low end an alkyl chain with a majority of C12 alkyl chain length and in the high end a majority of C18 alkyl chain length. The amount of tertiary amine is >90%, and residual primary or secondary amine is <5%. The amount of ethylene oxide in adduct is in average <3 moles.

A Category justification document is attached to each substance in the category, in section 13.
