Description of key information

No data is available on the toxicokinetics, metabolism and distribution of Potassium N-(2-carboxyethyl)-N-(2-ethylhexyl)-β-alaninate, CAS 94441-92-6. Based on the toxicological profile of the substance this information is not considered as a requirement. The information in this chapter has therefore been derived based on the physicochemical properties of the substance. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Bioaccumulation potential:
low bioaccumulation potential

Additional information

No data is available on the toxicokinetics, metabolism and distribution of Potassium N-(2-carboxyethyl)-N-(2-ethylhexyl)-β-alaninate, CAS 94441-92-6. Based on the toxicological profile of the substance this information is not considered as a requirement. The information in this chapter has therefore been derived based on the physicochemical properties of the substance, and information on bioaccumulation potential from the chapter on environmental fate and pathways.

Absorption via oral route is considered to be complete and by dermal route low, based on the substance being a salt which easily dissociates in water. As a worst case, absorption via the inhalational route is also considered to be complete, although exposure to the substance via inhalation is very unlikely based on the physical appearance of the substance. The substance is not considered to have a potential for bioaccumulation, based on its water solubility properties and the low Kow value.
