Description of key information

Conclusion: Hydrolysis will not significantly contribute to the removal of DIUP from the environment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Results from the EQC (Equilibrium Criterion) Levels I and III distribution models (Mackay, 2001) show that because of its low water solubility, DIUP is not expected to partition to the water compartment (see Section 4.2.2). However, abiotic degradation of any trace amounts of DIUP which may be present in aquatic environments is unlikely to occur at a significant rate based on modeled data. The HYDROWIN model, a subroutine within the USEPA (2000) computer program, estimates a hydrolysis half-life for DIUP of 4.2 years at pH 7 (25°C) and 152.4 days at pH 8 (25°C).
