Additional information

The assessment of the environmental fate properties of C12-14 ADMAES is based ondata on the substance itself and on other structurally similar analogues i.e.,quaternary ammonium compounds, benzyl C12-C16 (even numbered)-alkyldimethyl chlorides(C12-16 ADBAC) and Quaternary ammonium compounds, C12-C18 (even numbered) alkyltrimethyl chloride (C12-18 TMAC). Justification for this read-across approach is provided in a separate document entitled ‘Quaternary Ammonium Salts (QAS): REACH read-across justification for members of the QAS category’appended to Section 13 of the IUCLID file.
