Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

The water solubility of lithium behenate was determined to be 0.000046 g/L but the water solubility of the remaining substances in the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14 -C22 category could not be determined because they have surface active properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

GLP-compliant, guideline water solubility studies were attempted for lithium myristate, lithium 12 -hydroxystearate and lithium behenate. An unbounded water solubility value was determined for lithium behenate but, for lithium myristate and lithium 12 -hydroxystearate, the studies were not feasible as the substances are surface active. Further investigations on the water solubility of lithium 12 -hydroxystearate are currently ongoing (Covance 2020).
