Description of key information

In the assessment of environmental fate, i.e. transport and distribution, of zinc ditetradecanoate, read-across to the assessment entities soluble zinc substances and tetradecanoic/myristic acid is applied since the ions of zinc ditetradecanoate determine the environmental fate of zinc ditetradecanoate. Zinc ditetradecanoate is produced by the oleochemistry sector, starting from natural fatty materials and consists of approximately 88% natural fatty acids and 13% zinc. Thus, transport and distribution of zinc ditetradecanoate in the environment is most accurately evaluated by separately assessing the fate of its constituents zinc and ditetradecanoate.
