Description of key information

The adsorption potential of alcohol ethoxylates is depends on the properties of the AE substance. Properties like chain length of the alcohol and level of ethoxylation drive the adsorption potential, but it also depends on the properties of the soil, sediment or suspended solids to which the substance adsorbs. The available QSAR calculations and experimental data demonstrate an adsorption potential for the alcohol ethoxylates, which increases with increasing chain length and level of ethoxylation.
