Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Additional information


Aldehydes including n/i-C13 -C15 –aldehydes are hydrolytically stable due to their chemical structure and reactivity in aqueous environmental compartments under ambient conditions (GUBDH, 2008).


n/i-C13 -C15 –aldehydes were shown to be readily biodegradable in a valid GLP OECD TG 310 guideline test which is considered to be suitable for assessment (Harlan, 2011).


The adsorption coefficient for n/i-C13-C15-aldehydes indicates that adsorption to soil is possible (estimated log Koc: 3.12; ECT, 2011).

Henry's Law Constant

The HLC for n/i-C13 -C15 -aldehydes was estimated to be 155 to 273 Pa*m³/mol (ECT, 2011). Based on these values the evaporation of n/i-C13 -C15 -aldehyde from the water surface and moist soil is expected.
