Additional information

The substance is partly or moderately biodegradable in water. Comparable degradation rates are expected for biodegradation in surface water and sediment. However, the degradation products retinol and palmitic acid are readily biodegradable; in addition, both substances are natural nutrients. Therefore, simulation studies on biodegradation in surface water and sediment are not provided.
