Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (< 0.05 mg/L), low volatilization potential (vapour pressure: 0.0095 Pa at 20 °C) and high log Koc (> 5), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution ofisononanoic acid, C16-18 alkyl esters. However, due to the ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments. Furthermore an exposure to the soil can be excluded based on the identified uses (see IUCLID Section 3.5).
