Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (< 1 mg/L), low volatilization potential (VP < 0.0001 Pa) and log Koc (> 3), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution of reaction mass oftetraesters from esterification of pentaerythritol with pentanoic, heptanoic and isononanoic acids (former CAS 68424-30-6).However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments.
