Description of key information

Additional information

No experimental data are available (waiving according to Column 2 of Annex IX, 9.4 of REGULATION (EC) No 1907/2006).

Pronounced exposure of soil is unlikely: Due to the short carbon chain lengths of the member-compounds, the amine heads category does not show surface active properties and the octanol-water partition coefficient is very low. Distribution to soil therefore is highly unlikely and rapid biodegradation in the water phase was consistently demonstrated. Out of the same reasons, indirect exposure via adsorption to sludge and consecutively soil exposure via sludge is highly improbable. The toxicity potential towards soil organisms is assessed via equilibrium partitioning (EPM method).
