No determination was possible by Method 111 of the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals due to the negligible solubility of soybean oil, epoxidised in water, 1.36 x 10-3 g/L of solution at 20.0 ± 0.5 °C. Secondly and more critically, the test material found in solution during the water solubility study represented only the lower molecular weight range of the test material components. Therefore working at half this water solubility value, the maximum concentration permitted by the method guideline, was not applicable since the value does not address the more abundant, higher molecular weight fraction of the test material.

According to REACH guidelines a Stability study is not required as Soybean Oil, epoxidised is considered to be readily biodegradable ( Schulthess A.V., 1988).
