Adsorption/desorption

According to REACH regulation (Annex VIII, 9.3.1 column 2) an adsorption/desorption screening test does not need to be conducted, if the substance and its relevant degradation products decompose rapidly. As the TEA-Esterquats are determined to be readily biodegradable and are subject to degradation by hydrolysis, therefore a study on adsorption/desorption is considered to be not necessary.
