lactate fully dissociates into sodium cations and lactate anions in
aqueous environments. Therefore, the transport and distribution
behaviour of Sodium
lactate in the environment can be understood in terms of the transport
and distribution behaviour of sodium chloride and lactic acid.
Read-across from these two substances is considered feasible.
lactate does not contain any functional groups that are susceptible to
on an OECD 301B key study and a supporting study investigating the
biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), lactic acid is considered to be readily
biodegradable, and therefore also Sodium lactate is considered to be
readily biodegradable. Sodium chloride is inorganic and has a high water
solubility. Sodium and chloride ions are essential constituents of the
body of all animals and the concentration is maintained in the
vertebrate body by fractional excretion. Lactic acid is highly soluble
in water, has a low log Kow (-0.54) and is readily biodegradable. Both
sodium chloride and lactic acid will not bioaccumulate, therefore Sodium
lactate is neither expected to bioaccumulate or bioconcentrate.
to its physicochemical properties, lactic acid will be present, remain,
or distribute to, aqueous compartments, and will be rapidly degraded or
