Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (< 1 mg/L), low volatilization potential (VP < 0.0001 Pa) and log Koc (> 3), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution of fatty acids, C5-10 (linear and branched), tetraesters with pentaerythritol (CAS-No. 68424-31-7). However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments.
