Additional information

The estimated Koc of amides, C8-18 and C18-unsatd., N,N-bis(hydroxyethyl) is 243 L/kg (weighted average; Table 11). A Koc value below 500 indicates a low to moderate potential for adsorption to the organic matter of sediment. Also, the substance is readily biodegradable. Therefore, no relevant partitioning of the substance to the sediment compartment is expected to occur, suggesting a low potential for exposure of sediment organisms.
