Additional information

Bis(2-(2-butoxyethoxy)ethyl) adipate (CAS 141-17-3) is highly soluble in water (0.57 g/L at 20 °C) and has low adsorption potential, based on a calculated log Koc of 2.2 (KOCWIN v2.00). Consequently, the main target compartment of the substance in the environment is expected to be the aquatic compartment. However, due to the ready biodegradability, the substance is expected to be rapidly removed from the environment.
