Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (< 0.05 mg/L), low volatilization potential (VP < 0.001 Pa) and log Koc (> 5), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution of fatty acids, C16-18 and C18-unsaturated, tetraesters with pentaerythritol (CAS 68604-44-4). However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments.
