Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Additional information

No experimental data evaluating the biodegradation potential of 2,3-dihydroxypropyl laurate (CAS No. 142-18-7) are available. Therefore, data from a structurally related analogue substance are used as read-across in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex XI, 1.5. In a biodegradation screening study performed with the read-across substance Glycerides, C12-18 di- and tri-, CAS No. 91744-28-4, 79.5% biodegradation after 28 days was observed. Based on this result, 2,3-dihydroxypropyl laurate is expected to be readily biodegradable as well and therefore, rapidly biodegraded in both aquatic and terrestrial environments. Thus, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2,, and, further testing on biodegradation of the substance in water, sediment and soil are not required.
