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.

Description of key information

Hydrolysis is not relevant in regard to abiotic degradation in the environment (DT50 > 1 yr)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One study investigating Hydrolysis as a function of pH for Fatty acids, C8-10, mixed esters with adipic acid and trimethylolpropane (CAS No. 95912-89-3) is available. The study was performed according to OECD guideline 111. The potential of the substance to hydrolyse was tested over 5 days under conditions of a preliminary study at pH 4, 7, 9 and 50 °C. The determined average concentrations of 96 to 101% (w/w) (results of days 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5) revealed that the test item is stable and not prone to hydrolysis over 5 days when employing pH values of 4, 7 and 9 (Frischmann & Kenar, 2009). Thus, according to the OECD procedure, no further testing is required.

Additional QSAR calculations (HYDROWIN v2.00) for the main components of the substance support the assumption, that hydrolysis represents a negligible pathway for the fate of the test substance in the environment (DT50 [pH 7] > 1 yr; Hopp, 2011). In conclusion, hydrolysis is not a relevant degradation pathway in the environment.
