There are multiple Kow’s for 2,3 epoxypropyl neodecanoate including 2 QSARs and one found using an HPLC method. When using the worst case HPLC Kow (4.4) as the key study value for EPISUITE BCFBAF v3.00, the model yields a low bioaccumulation (371.6 L/kg maximum). This is well below the P and vP values of 2000 and 5000 L/kg respectively.  The primary hydrolysis product of the test substance, 2,3-epoxypropyl neodecanoate was the diol. 2,3-epoxypropyl neodecanoate is not B. As per the the results of the hydrolysis study the parent compound, 2,3-epoxypropyl neodecanoate, does not persist in the environment and cannot bioaccumulate. The hydrolysis product also shows a low potential to bioaccumulate.
