Additional information

Considering the low water solubility (< 1 mg/L) and low volatilization potential (vapour pressure < 0.008 Pa) of Fatty acids, C16-C18, methyl esters (CAS No. 85586-21-6), in combination with its potential for adsorption to solid particles (log Koc 4.1-5.5), the substance will tend to be mainly distributed in the soil and sediment compartments. Nevertheless, due to its ready biodegradability, persistence of the substance in these compartments is not expected.
