EC number: 807-130-4
CAS number: 53716-82-8
constant for reaction with OH radicals:
(submission substance): 2.5E-11 cm3/molecule.sec (half-life
Diol: 3.9E-11 cm3/molecule.sec (half-life 0.4 days)
measured phototransformation in air data are available for the
substance contains no chromophores that would absorb visible or UV
radiation, so direct photolysis is not likely to be significant.
Indirect photolysis resulting from gas-phase reaction with
photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals may occur.
AOPWIN program (v1.92, EPA 2010) has been used to obtain values of the
rate constant kOH for reaction of the submission
substance with hydroxyl radicals.
overall half-life in air under default conditions of hydroxyl radical
concentration was calculated using the following expressions:
(d-1) = kOH (cm3/molecule.sec) x
OH Concair (molecules/cm3) x 24 x 3600
(d) = ln 2/ kdegair (d-1)
rate constant for degradation in air
rate constant for reaction with hydroxyl radicals
concentration of hydroxyl radicals in air = 5E+05 OH molecules/ cm3
concentration of hydroxyl radicals in air of 5E+05 OH
molecules/cm3, and the 24 hour photoperiod, are the values
specified in ECHA Guidance on Information requirements and chemical
safety assessment, Part R.16 Environmental exposure estimation (ECHA,
