Description of key information

Based on physico-chemical properties, the main target compartments for the environmental distribution of Glycerides, C16-18 and C18-unsatd. mono- and di-, citrates (CAS 91052-16-3) would be soil and sediment. However, as the substance is readily biodegradable and to a high extent highly adsorptive (log Koc 2.51 - > 5), it is expected to be eliminated in sewage treatment plants to a high extent. Release to surface waters, and thereby exposure of sediment, is therefore very unlikely. The substance is expected to be rapidly removed from the environment via biodegradation in all compartments.
