Sulfonium compounds, C11-14-alkylbis(hydroxyethyl), 2-hydroxyethyl
sulfates (salts) is not expected to be bioaccumulative. Due to their
readily biodegradable nature, extensive degradation of these substances
in conventional STPs will take place and only low concentrations are
expected to be released into the environment. Once present in the
aquatic compartment, further biodegradation and adsorption will occur
lowering the bioavailable fraction. Being a cationic surfactant the
substance will be bioavailable to aquatic organisms such as fish (if at
all) via feed and contact with suspended organic particles. After
ingestion by fish species, a low uptake rate via membranes of the GI
tract as well as extensive and rapid biotransformation after entering
the body is expected.
