Description of key information

Additional information

Release to the environment is limited, as the substance is highly insoluble in water and only limited concentrations of the substance will presumably be discharged to the aqueous/sediment compartment. Therefore the release to surface waters, and thereby exposure of sediment and soil, is considered as marginally as the substance is not bioavailable. However, if the substance is exposed to water, it will not evaporate into the atmosphere from the water surface because of its low vapour pressure and low Henry's Law Constant. Thus, air is not a likely route of environmental contamination and accumulation and subsequent deposition of (Z)-N-Octadec-9-enylhexadecan-1-amide (CAS No. 16260-09-6) is not to be expected.

The substance is stable in water; hydrolysis is not expected to be an important process in the fate of (Z)-N-Octadec-9-enylhexadecan-1-amide (CAS No. 16260-09-6). Bioaccumulation or biomagnification of the substance through the food chain of the substance is not expected
