Due to the low vapour pressure of oleamide, a
Henry’s Law Constant of 0.0928 Pa m³/mol and the rapid half-life in air
calculated according to SRC AOPWIN to be 4.8 hours, it is concluded that
oleamide will not accumulate in air and will not be transported through
the vapour phase into other environmental compartments in relevant
amounts. Thus, air is not a likely route of environmental contamination
and no accumulation and subsequent deposition of oleamide is to be
The measured log Koc of 5.18 indicates a
potential to adsorb to soil and sediment. However, due to the ready
biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments
and as the test substance is poorly soluble in water (< 0.1 mg/L) it is
expected that sediments are, if at all, only exposed to very small
amounts of the test substance, as amounts will be present in wastewater,
they will be eliminated in common wastewater treatment plants to a large
amount due to the readily biodegradability of oleamide.
The overall environmental fate profile
indicates that oleamide is not to be persistence in the environment.
