Description of key information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (<0.01 mg/L), low volatilization potential (vapour pressure: < 0.0001 Pa and high log Koc (> 5), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution of Pentaerythritol, mixed esters with linear and branched fatty acids. However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments.
