Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

The degradation pathway of the registration substance has been modeled and is included in the IUCLID dataset.


By using the EAWAG-MODEL[1], which is proposed in ECHA Guidance document R., using SMILES-Code OCCN(CCO)C1CCCCC1, different possible pathways can be described. All result in complete mineralization of the substance. The obtained pictures showing the predicted pathway can be found attached.

Following the predicted pathway, the degradation of the registration substance is initiated either by subsequent direct elimination of the ethoxylate groups, by elimination of the ethoxylate groups by oxidation of the hydroxyl groups or by direct elimination of the cyclohexane moiety. The formed cyclohexylamine or cyclohexanone are further degraded through the cyclohexane pathway. The formed amino compounds are further degraded as modeled and described below for linear primary amine ethoxylates for diethanolamine.


In conclusion no stable metabolites must be expected, and the degradation pathway is similar for all constituents of the substance.
