Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (< 1 mg/L or even < 0.05 mg/L), low volatilization potential (vapour pressure: <0.0001 Pa (minimum) - 0.11 Pa (maximum)) and high log Koc (> 5), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution of the Long Chain Aliphatic Esters (LCAE) category members. However, due to their ready biodegradability, the substances will not persist in these compartments.
