Additional information

Based on physico-chemical properties, the main target compartments Reaction products resulting from the esterification of Sorbitol with C8-18 (even) and C18unsaturated fatty acids in the ratio 1:1 (EC 931-434-7) would be soil and sediment. However, the substance is readily biodegradable and highly sorptive, based on calculated estimation, and is thus expected to be eliminated in sewage treatment plants to a high extent. Release to surface waters, and thereby exposure of sediment, is therefore very unlikely. In soil, the substance is expected to be rapidly biodegraded.
