Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Additional information

The substances in the lithium salts of dicarboxylic acids C6 -C10 category are considered to be readily biodegradable based on data read across from adipic acid, as well as data read across from lithium 12 -hydroxystearate and a mixture of sodium laurate and potassium oleate, as well as QSAR predictions for the respective acids of each category member. This conclusion is supported by data on dilithium glutarate (C5), which shows that the substance is readily biodegradable, reaching 50% degradation on day 3 and 94% degradation by day 28 of an OECD 301F manometric respirometry test (see dissemination portal). A ready biodegradation test is currently ongoing with dilithium sebacate (C10) to provide data on longer chain length category members as well.

On the basis that the substances in the lithium salts of dicarboxylic acids C6 -C10 category are readily biodegradable, the simulation studies in water, sediment and soil have been waived, as well as the adsorption/desorption and hydrolysis studies. The bioaccumulation study has been waived on the basis that the substances in the category have logKows of less than 4.5.
