Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to REACH Annex VIII column 2, adsorption/desorption studies can be waived for substances with a low potential for adsorption or if the substance and its relevant degradation products decompose rapidly. Dipropylene glycol methyl ether

is readily biodegradable and has a log Kow (log Kow< 1), therefore has a low potential for sorption to organic matter.
