Endpoint:
hydrolysis
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable

Description of key information

Hydrolysis is not relevant due to ready biodegradability.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental studies assessing the abiotic hydrolysis of Isohexadecyl 12-[(1-oxooctadecyl)oxy]octadecanoate (CAS 97338-28-8) are available. However, in accordance with Annex VIII, column 2, 9.2.1.1 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, testing is not required since the substance is readily biodegradable. In addition, a supporting QSAR calculation (HYDROWIN v2.00) corroborates that hydrolysis is not a relevant environmental fate pathway (DT50 > 1 yr, pH 7).
