Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Administrative data

PBT assessment: overall result

PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

Persistence Assessment:

The ready biodegradability of the target substance 1, 1,2,3 -Propanetricarboxylic acid, 2 -Hydroxy-, tris(C14 -C15 -alkyl)ester), was determined with a non-adapted activated sludge over a test period of 48 days in the Modified Sturm Test according to OECD 301 B. Based on that test 1,2,3-Propanetricarboxylic acid, 2-Hydroxy-,tris(C14-C15-alkyl)esters is classified as readily biodegradable.

Therefore the substance is not very persistent (vP) or persistent (P).

Bioaccumulation Assessment:

1,2,3 -Propanetricarboxylic acid, 2 -Hydroxy-, tris(C14 -C15 -alkyl)ester) is not bioaccumulative (B) or very bioaccumulative (vB) based on results from a calculated bioconcentration (BCF) factor with EPISUITE software (EPIWEB 4.0).

The calculated BCF was 3.16 L/kg (regression-based estimate) and 0.893 L/kg (Arnot-Gobas upper trophic estimate). Therefore the BCF is well below 2000 L/kg, which is the criterion for not being considered B, and well below 5000 L/kg, which is the criterion for not being considered vB.

Toxicity Assessment:

1,2,3-Propanetricarboxylic acid, 2-Hydroxy-,tris(C14-C15-alkyl)esters or it´s degradation products are not classified as toxic according to Directive 67/548/EEC and the data on toxicity provided herein.

Summary and overall Conclusions on PBT or vPvB Properties:

The data on the properties of 1,2,3-Propanetricarboxylic acid, 2-Hydroxy-,tris(C14-C15-alkyl)esters do not meet the specific criteria detailed in Annex XIII and demonstrate that 1,2,3-Propanetricarboxylic acid, 2-Hydroxy-,tris(C14-C15-alkyl)esters is not a PBT or vPvB.
