Additional information

Abiotic degradation

According to structural properties, hydrolysis is not expected.

After evaporation or exposure to the air, the product will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes with a half life of 0.089 days.

Biotic degradation

Only the screening data on biodegradation in water are available according to the information requirements of Annex VIII of REACH Regulation.

The substance is not readily biodegradable according to the OECD criteria, but in one of the tests done a 23% of degradation was observed after 14 days. It means that the substance will be degraded slowly in the environment.

Adsorption/Desorption

The Koc value of 92.75 (estimated by QSAR) suggests that the substance can be classifieda as mobile (according to MCCALL classification scheme, a substance with Koc 150 - 500 can be classified to have a medium mobility and with Koc 500 - 2000 to have a low mobility), and the adsorption won't be favored. Based on the available information the substance is not adsorptive, and that indicates that soil and sediment are not expected to be the main target compartments for exposure assessment.
