Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Administrative data

particle size distribution (granulometry)
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is marketed or used in a non solid or granular form
Reason / purpose for cross-reference:
data waiving: supporting information
appearance / physical state / colour
Type of information:
other: observation
Adequacy of study:
key study
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: acceptable company statement, sensorial observation, scientifically reasonable, but no guideline followed, no GLP
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
- Visual description of the colour (in daylight by an observer with normal colour vision) and the physical state (at 20°C and 1013 hPa)
- Determination of the odour at room temperature and comparison to other substances of characteristic odours
GLP compliance:
Physical state at 20°C and 1013 hPa:
other: slightly amine-like
Substance type:
The determination of the test item's appearance / physical state / colour was determined scientifically reasonably by visual and sensorical inspection. There is no indication given that the results are not reliable. Hence, the substance can be considered as yellowish solid with a slightly amine-like odour.
Executive summary:

The appearance / physical state / colour of Octadecanoic acid, reaction products with tetraethylenepentamine was determined by visual inspection / sensorial observation. It was determined to be a yellowish solid (pellets) with a slightly amine-like odour at 20 °C and 1013 hPa.
