Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 chemical safety assessment does not indicate the need for soil simulation testing. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex IX and X No 9.2, no further testing on soil biotic degradation and identification of degradation products needs to be conducted as the CSA does not indicate the need for further testing: TCD Alcohol DM does not have a high potential for adsorption (log Kow < 3 IUCLID Sect. 4.7, low estimated Koc of 16.8, IUCLID Sect. 5.4.1). Based on the valid simulation test on degradation in surface water (OECD TG 309; Noack, 2021), TCD Alcohol DM is rapidly transformed to the dicarboxylic acid derivative. Any losses due to adsorption could reliably be excluded based on a mass balance of ca. 100 %. No relevant further information could be expected from additional simulation testing with soil.
