Fatty acids, C16-18, esters with pentaerythritol (CAS-No. 85116-93-4) is readily biodegradable. In addition, the adsorption potential for Fatty acids, C16-18, esters with pentaerythritol (CAS: 85116-93-4) is assumed to be low as this substance is readily biodegradable and therefore the substance and its relevant degradation products decompose rapidly. Therefore, the substance is not expected to be persistent in the environment. Furthermore, a low potential for bioaccumulation is assumed based on the chemical properties of this substance. Thus, the substance is not expected to bioaccumulate in biota.
