Description of key information

Metal carboxylates such as fatty acids, tall-oil, manganese salts are substances consisting of a metal cation and a carboxylic acid anion. Based on the solubility of fatty acids, tall-oil, manganese salts in water, a complete dissociation resulting in manganese cations and fatty acid anions may be assumed under environmental conditions. Abiotic degradation is not relevant for manganese cations. Fatty acids as contained in tall oil photodegrade with half-live times in air of < 1 day. Due to the structural properties, hydrolysis is not expected to be an important fate path for fatty acids as contained in tall oil.
