Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (4.24E-012 mg/L), low volatilization potential (VP: < 1E-10 Pa) and high log Koc (> 3), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution of ethylene distearate (CAS 627-83-8). However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments.
