Not relevant due to ready biodegradation

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No simulation tests investigating the biodegradation of 2,3-dihydroxypropyl laurate (CAS No. 142-18-7) in water and sediment are available. According to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Column 2, Annex IX, 9.2.1.2 and 9.2.1.4, simulation testing is not necessary since 2,3-dihydroxypropyl laurate is readily biodegradable.
