Additional information

The substance is not expected to adsorb to a high degree to suspended solids and sediment based upon the log Koc as calculated for formaldehyde (log Koc = 1.202). When dissolved to water the substance will not significantly evaporate into air (Henry's Law constant < 1 Pa m3 mol-1). Using simple environmental models based on fugacity, the main target for environmental distribution will be water (Mackay Level I calculation; BASF SE, 2008).
