Description of key information

Not relevant due to ready biodegradation.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with Annex VIII, column 2 (9.2.2.1) of Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, testing for hydrolysis as a function of pH is not required as Multi constituent ester of pentaerythritol 2-ethylhexanoate is readily biodegradable. In addition, QSAR calculations for its main components using HYDROWIN v2.00 indicate that hydrolysis is not a relevant degradation pathway at environmental conditions (DT50 [pH7] > 1 yr; Hopp, 2011).
