Additional information

After exposure to soil, isobutyl vinyl ether is not expected to adsorb significantly to solid soil phase (e.g. clay). Evaporation from water or moist soil surfaces is an important fate path due to the high Henrys Law Constant. The distribution of the substance between the environmental compartments was calculated by use of the Mackay LEVEL 1 v3.00 programme (BASF 2016). The standard environmental properties for the calculation are drawn from a publication of Mackay (2001). Due to the results of the Mackay LEVEL 1 calculation, over time the substance will preferentially distribute into the compartment air (100%).
