Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Should be stated that the potential to adsorb or bind onto sediment is very low: the logKow of oxalic acid is -1.7, much more lower than the trigger value proposed in guides.

On the other hand, the substance is readily biodegradable in water sediment. Therefore, a long term sediment test is not considered suitable due to the high rate of degradation of oxalic acid.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
