Description of key information

Not relevant due to ready biodegradation.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Since Fatty acids, C12-16, esters with neopentyl glycol (CAS No. 85186-95-4) is readily biodegradable, it is expected to be eliminated from the aquatic environment within a short period of time. Hydrolysis is therefore not relevant. In accordance with column 2 of Annex VIII, 9.2.2.1 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, testing for hydrolysis is not required as the substance is readily biodegradable.
