Description of key information

Additional information

Abiotic degradation is not a relevant pathway for 3,5,5 trimethylhexanoic acid, mixed esters with dipentaerythritol (CAS 84418-63-3). Since the substance is not likely to be present in the atmosphere based on the low vapour pressure (< 1 Pa at 20 °C), indirect photolysis is not to be expected. Abiotic hydrolysis is not relevant, since the substance is poorly water soluble (< 10 µg/L, 20 °C).
