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.

Additional information

No studies investigating the biodegradation of the substance in soil are available. The results from the ready biodegradability test (51.5% after 28 days) show that a significant degree of biodegradation of this substance in the environment can be expected. Nevertheless, as a worst-case approach, persistency of 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic acid, di-C16-18-alkyl esters (CAS No. 90193-76-3) cannot be excluded. However, a confirmatory long-term study with earthworms did not result in any hazard up to the highest test concentration (NOEC (56 d) ≥ 1000 mg/kg soil dw).
