Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as low water solubility (< 5 µg/L at 20 °C, pH=6.3), low volatilization potential (vapour pressure: < 0.0001 Pa and high log Koc (3.25 - > 5), sediment and soil are expected to be the main targets for environmental distribution of Fatty acids, C16-18 (even numbered) and C18-unsatd., branched and linear, tri- and tetraesters with pentaerythritol. However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments.
