Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (0.5-1 µg/L at 20 °C, pH 6), low volatilization potential (vapour pressure: < 0.0001 Pa and high log Koc (> 5), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution oftetradecyl stearate. However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments.
