Description of key information

Additional information

Based on QSAR calculations for its main constituents Reaction mass of bis(2-propylheptyl) hexanedioate and O6-[2,2-bis[[6-oxo-6-(2-propylheptoxy)hexanoyl]oxymethyl]butyl] O1-(2-propylheptyl) hexanedioate is considered to be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes, after evaporation or exposure to the air. However, abiotic degradation is not a relevant pathway, since both main constituents are not likely to be present in the atmosphere due to their low vapour pressure. As the test substance is readily biodegradable, hydrolysis as well as phototransformation in water and sediment are not considered to relevantly contribute to the environmental fate of the substance.
