Description of key information

Based on the solubility of Fatty acids, C9-13-neo-, potassium salts in water, biodgegradationin the environment is most accurately evaluated by separately assessing the fate of its constituents potassium and neodecanoate ions.The concept of biodegradation is not applicable to potassium ions. In addition, neodecanoic acid is not readily biodegradable (11% biodegradation in 28 d) based on results from a standard OECD ready biodegradation test. Therefore, data available for potassium cations and neodecanoate anions indicate that biotic degradation is not a relevant process for the environmental fate of Fatty acids, C9-13-neo-, potassium salts.
