Additional information

The physico-chemical properties of Stearic acid, monoester with glycerol (CAS 31566-31-1) such as low water solubility (< 1 mg/L), low volatilization potential (VP: <0.0001 Pa for all components) and high log Koc (>3), indicate that the substance will predominantly distribute to soil and sediment when released to the environment. However, the substance is not expected to accumulate and persist in these compartments due to its ready biodegradability.
