PBT assessment

Administrative data

PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
PBT assessment does not apply
Justification:

According to Annex XIII of Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 a PBT and vPvB assessment shall not be conducted for inorganic substances. Magnesium 2-ethylhexanoate is an inorganic substance (cf. International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC), (2005): Nomenclature of Inorganic Chemistry. Issued by the Division of Chemical Nomenclature and Structure Representation in collaboration with the Division of Inorganic Chemistry), thus a PBT and vPvB assessment is not required. However, magnesium 2-ethylhexanoate consists of magnesium cations and 2-ethylhexanoate anions. The latter is not PBT / vPvB.
