Description of key information

No tests are required due to the ready biodegradability of Fatty acids, C16-18, esters with pentaerythritol (CAS-No. 85116-93-4).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No simulation tests investigating the biodegradation in water and sediment are available but as Fatty acids, C16-18, esters with pentaerythritol (CAS-No. 85116-93-4) is readily biodegradable, no testing is required according to column 2 of EC 1907/2006 Annex IX. Furthermore the test substance is poorly soluble in water (< 1 mg/L) and therefore high concentrations can not be expected in the aquatic environment.
