Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Monoethanolamineoleate is characterised as “readily biodegradable”.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

No data on biodegradation screening is available for monoethanolamineoleate. A non-GLP OECD guideline 301A (DOC Die-Away test) is available for the structural analogue monoethanolamine. Read-across with monoethanolamine alone is justified as oleic acid is exempted from registration (for more details see reporting format for the analogue approach in Appendix). After 21 days >90% degradation based on DOC removal was observed for monoethanolamine (BASF, 1995). Therefore, it is assumed that also the monoethanolamine cation in monoethanolamineoleate is readily biodegradable.
