Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (5.14E-10 mg/L), low volatilization potential (< 0.0001 Pa) and high log Koc (> 3), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution of ethane-1,2-diyl palmitate (CAS 624-03-3). However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments.
