Description of key information

Hydrolysis is not a relevant degradation pathway for the category members Fatty Acids in aquatic environment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Significant hydrolysis of the members of the category Fatty Acids is not expected based on the molecular structure (aliphatic and mostly saturated carbon chains). Furthermore, in accordance with column 2 of EC 1907/2006 Annex VIII 9.2.2.1 the testing is not required since the substance is readily biodegradable.
