Description of key information

Additional information

Abiotic degradation is not a relevant pathway for Bis(2-(2-butoxyethoxy)ethyl) adipate (CAS 141-17-3). Due to the low vapour pressure (< 0.0001 Pa at 20 °C) the substance is not likely to be present in the atmosphere, and therefore indirect photolysis in air is not to be expected. Abiotic hydrolysis is not relevant, since the substance is readily biodegradable and is expected to be eliminated through biodegradation in natural waters. Additionally, estimated rates of hydrolysis are very low (half-life (DT50) of 294 days at pH 7).
