Additional information

Fatty acids, C14-22, C16-24-alkyl esters (CAS 92797-30-3) has a low water solubility (< 2.5 µg/L, 20 °C, pH 6.3), low volatilization potential (vapor pressure < 0.0001 Pa, SPARC v4.6) and a high estimated potential for adsorption (log Koc > 5.0, 25 °C, EPI Suite v4.11, KOCWIN v2.00). Based on these physico-chemical properties, the substance is expected to preferentially distribute into the sediment and soil compartment. Since the target substance is readily biodegradable (68.1 – 71.7% in 29 d, OECD 301 B), it is not expected to be persistent.
