The half-life for nitroethane for reaction with hydroxyl radicals was estimated using the EPIWIN AOP program. In the Fujiki test approximately 76% of the test material was photodegraded within 24 hours upon exposure to fluorescent light, lamda 300 and 360 nm. Nitroethane did not hydrolyze in water.
Rate constant= 0.000000000000149 cm³/(molecule*sec)
Degradation= 50% after 71.8 day(s)
Photodegradation was measured by exposing silica gel coated with the test material to the light of a mercury vapor lamp. The tested nitroparaffins, which included nitroethane, were degraded readily. Since the tests last only 17 hours, all nitroparaffins have to be considered as readily photodegradable.
