Additional information

Considering the low water solubility (< 0.06 mg/L) and negligible volatilization potential (vapour pressure < 0.55 Pa at 25 °C) of Fatty acids, C12-14 (even numbered), methyl esters, in combination with its potential for adsorption to solid particles (log Koc = 3.1 - 4.4), soil and sediment are expected to be the main compartments of concern for this substance. Nevertheless, due to its ready biodegradability, persistence of Fatty acids, C12 -14 (even numbered), methyl esters in these compartments is not expected.
