Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

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.
