Amines, alkoxylated (NLP)

Justifications and discussions

Category definition:
The Aminealkoxylated Category are substances derived from Primary Fatty amines, alkoxylated with <3 moles ethylene oxide to form a tertiary amine structure, see example below. The structure varies with the length of the fatty amine alkyl chain length and the alkoxylation. The phys-chem, fate and tox-and ecotoxicology properties are expected to vary in a predictable pattern based only on the variation in chain length.
Category rationale:
The boundaries of the category defined here is for the low end an alkyl chain with a majority of C12 alkyl chain length and in the high end a majority of C18 alkyl chain length. The amount of tertiary amine is >90%, and residual primary or secondary amine is <5%. The amount of alkylene oxide in adduct is in average <3 moles.
