Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Due to the low water solubility, rapid environmental biodegradation and metabolisation via enzymatic hydrolysis of glycol esters, a relevant uptake and bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms is not expected. Enzymatic breakdown will initially lead to the free fatty acid and the free glycol alcohol. From literature it is well known, that these hydrolysis products will be metabolised and excreted in fish effectively (Heymann, 1980; Lech & Bend, 1980; Lech & Melancon, 1980; Murphy & Lutenske, 1990).
