Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

experimentally not determinable for Fatty acids, C16-18 (even numbered), aluminum salts
Aluminium: not applicable (inorganic)
Palmitic acid (57-10-3): log Kow = 6.96
Stearic acid (57-11-4): log Kow = 7.94

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The partition coefficient of Fatty acids, C16-18 (even numbered), aluminum salts could not be determined because the substance does not dissolve in water. QSARs are not available for substances containing aluminum. Therefore the partition coefficients of the components are given instead.

For the aluminum part of the substance the partition coefficient is not applicable because it is inorganic.

The partition coefficients of the two main fatty acid components (stearic acid and palmitic acid) were estimated by a validated calculation method.
