Description of key information

Additional information

The substance is an UVCB solid with low melting point at room temperature and a characteristic odour and no melting and boiling point.

The relative density was determined as 0.8786 at 20°C and no granulometry determination can be done due to the physical state of the substance.

According to Annex VII of REACH Regulation 1907/2006, column 2, the study of vapour pressure does not need to be conducted for this substance but the lowest value accepted by EUSES has been reported for a complete Risk assessment (0.0000001 Pa).

Ester G logP(ow) is about 4.4, the water solubility of Ester G was evaluated with a preliminary test and a final test, resulted 0,20 mg/L at 20 °C and pH 6.1.

According to Annex VII of REACH Regulation 1907/2006, column 2, if the water solubility is below 1 mg/L at 20°C the surface tension test does not need to be conducted. The tested solubility is 0.20 mg/L, therefore this test is not necessary.

Ester G is not expected to be auto-flammable, flammable, explosive and it is deemed to be potentially not oxidising based on the chemical structure, the oxygen balance values and the known experience in the handling and use of the substance.
