Hydrolysis:

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, section 9.2.2.1, a study on hydrolysis does not need to be conducted as all long-chain alkyl esters (C12 - C14) are readily biodegradable. Further the water solubility of the long-chain alkyl esters is very low (< 1 µg/L at 20 °C)

Phototransformation in air:

The rate constant (for indirect photolysis) was calculated to be 0.00000000000000000175 cm³/(molecule*sec). Degradation in % (for indirect photolysis) was estimated to be 50 after 6.5 day(s)
