Description of key information

Based on the solubility of potassium neodecanoate in water, biodgegradation in 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 acidis 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 anionsindicate that biotic degradation is not a relevant process for the environmental fate of potassium neodecanoate.
