Description of key information

Additional information

Due to the chemical structure of Fatty acids, C16-18 and C18-unsaturated, dimerized (CAS No. 71808-39-4) and the low water solubility (< 0.41 mg/L, detection limit), hydrolysis does not contribute to abiotic degradation in the aquatic environment. Photodegradation of Fatty acids, C16-18 and C18-unsaturated, dimerized (CAS No. 71808-39-4) in air is not a relevant degradation pathway as the vapour pressure under ambient conditions is negligible.
