EC number: 200-068-3
CAS number: 50-85-1
Programs Interface (EPI Suite, 2017) prediction model was run to predict
the half-life in water and sediment for the test compound
2-Hydroxy-4-methylbenzoic acid (CAS No. 50 -85 -1). If released in to
the environment, 26 % of the chemical will partition into water
according to the Mackay fugacity model level III and the half-life
period of test chemical 2-Hydroxy-4- methylbenzoic acid in water is
estimated to be 15 days (360 hrs). The half-life (15 days estimated by
EPI suite) indicates that the chemical 2-Hydroxy-4-methylbenzoic acid is
not persistent in water and the exposure risk to aquatic animals is
moderate to low whereas the half-life period of test chemical
2-Hydroxy-4-methylbenzoic acid in sediment is estimated to be 135 days
(3240 hrs). However, as the percentage release of test chemical into the
sediment is less than 1% (i.e, reported as 0.0853 %), indicates that
test chemical 2-Hydroxy-4-methylbenzoic acid is not persistent in
