Description of key information

Water solubility was determined for LL-lactide and DD-lactide. The outcome was similar for the two lactides and is fully valid for dilactide as dilactide is a mixture of DD- and LL-lactide isomers. Lactides degrade rapidly in water. Water solubility of the test substance at 20.1 ± 0.6°C in the presence of excess undissolved lactide was determined to be 16.3-16.7 g/L.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
16.3 g/L
at the temperature of:
