Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

In vivo and in vitro data are available on dermal absorption of ethanolamine, a minor constituent of the substance, and which the major constituent (carbonic acid, compound with 2-aminoethanol (1:2)) is expected to degrade to under certain conditions. When applied, in ethanol, to human grafted skin and mouse skin approximately 34% of applied radioactivity was recovered in organs/tissues and urine/faeces, and a further 18% was oxidised to [14C]-CO2, indicating dermal absorption over 24h of ca. 52%. A further 18%  remained on/in the skin grafts. The registered substance is expected to show a similar absorption rate. On consideration of structure, water solubility, etc. it is expected that the absorption via oral and inhalation exposures will be relatively extensive.
