Description of key information

A hydrophilic-lipophilic balance of 4.3 can be calculated, indicating it may act as a water/oil emulsifier. However, because the structure lacks a distinct hydrophilic head-group, and steric considerations with the two short alkyl chains limit exposure of the central ether group, surface activity is not expected. According to Regulation (EC) no. 1907/2006, Annex VII, 7.6, column 2, the study does not need to be conducted if based on the chemical structure, surface activity is not expected.
