Description of key information

The surface tension of  Alcohols, C16-17, branched and linear is not quantified. A value of ca. 66.5 mN/m at ca. 90% saturated aqueous solution is estimated by read-across from (Z)-octadec-9-enol.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A preliminary assessment by calculated Hydrophilic Lipophilic Balance suggests that no surface tension lowering property would be expected on the basis of structure alone.
