Additional information

Considering the low water solubility (0.1 mg/L) and low volatilization potential (vapour pressure < 0.0001 Pa) of isooctadecanoic acid, mono- and diester with glycerol (CAS No. 97358-80-0), in combination with estimated log Koc values ranging from 2.9 to 8.6, if released into the environment the substance will tend to be mainly distributed in the soil and sediment compartments. Nevertheless, due to its ready biodegradability, persistence of the substance in these compartments is not expected.
