Additional information

No experimental result for Fatty acids, C16-18, esters with pentaerythritol (CAS-No. 85116-93-4) is available. However, in accordance with column 2 of EC 1907/2006 Annex VIII the testing does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable and poorly soluble in water. Therefore, hydrolysis is not considered as a relevant degradation pathway. Testing with the read-across substance Fatty acids, C14-18 and C18-unsatd., branched and linear, esters with trimethylolpropane (CAS 85005-23-8) indicated that a study is even technically not feasible due to the low water solubility. Information about phototransformation of the substance in air, water or soil does not have to be investigated according to Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.
