Additional information

No experimental data evaluating the potential for photodegradation of Glycerides, palm-oil mono-, hydrogenated, acetates (CAS No. 93572-32-8) in air are available. Since the substance is a complex UVCB, QSAR calculations using the AOPWIN v1.92 program have been performed on representative fatty acid components (C16 mono/monoacetate and C18 mono-), resulting in estimated half-lives (DT50 values) of 11.9 and 13.1 hours (reaction with OH-radicals, 24h-day)(López Parrón, 2011). These values indicate that the substance is susceptible to undergo rapid indirect photodegradation in air. Nevertheless, this is not expected to be a relevant environmental fate process, since Glycerides, palm-oil mono-, hydrogenated, acetates is not likely to be present in the atmosphere in relevant amounts based on its estimated vapour pressure (< 0.0001 Pa at 20 °C).
