Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Additional information

Hexadecene does not contain any hydrolysable functional groups, so will not undergo hydrolysis. Based on read across hexadecene is considered to be readily biodegradable. Due to this, the simulation tests on degradation in water, soil and sediment are not required as hexadecene is not expected to persist in the aquatic or terrestrial environment.

Log BCFs have been calculated on the basis of the calculated log Kow using two different QSARs that are appropriate for hexadecene. The calculated log BCFs are in the range 3.05 - 4.41. A log Koc of 6.56 has also been calculated on the basis of the calculated Kow using a QSAR that may be appropriate for hexadecene.
