Description of key information

Additional information

Tetramine di-C16 -18 is pronated under ambient conditions. This means that it will sorb strongly to negatively charges substances like glassware, soil and sediment constituents. Sorption of alkyl polyamines is mainly driven by ionic interaction and to a lesser extend by the hydrophobic interaction of the hydrophobic tail(s).

The substance will be protonated under environmental conditions and will behave as a salt. It will due to that have a very low vapour pressure. Evaporation from water or soil will be neglibible also because of the extremely low dissolved concentration due to the strong sorption in the environment.
