Description of key information

Zirconium, acetate lactate oxo ammonium complexes consists of ammonium [NH4]+ and zirconium [Zr]4+ cations and acetate [CH3COO]2- and lactate [CH3CH(OH)COO]2- anions. A complete dissociation of zirconium, acetate lactate oxo ammonium complexes resulting in ammonium, zirconium, acetate and lactate ions may be assumed under environmental conditions. Since acetate, ammonium, lactate and zirconium ions upon release behave differently in the environment, the fate of acetate, ammonium, lactate and zirconium ions in the environment is assessed separately.

 

Acetate, ammonium, lactate and zirconium ions do not contain any hydrolysable functional groups and thus hydrolysation is not relevant.

In sum, abiotic degradation is not considered to significantly affect the fate of the dissociation products of zirconium, acetate lactate oxo ammonium complexes in the environment.
