In the model p-cresol is treated as a type 1 chemical, i.e. the chemical partitions into all environmental media. Estimation is carried at an environmental temperature of 25 °C.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

The distribution of p-cresol in a "unit world" was calculated according to the Mackay fugacity model level I (Currenta, 2009) based on the physico-chemical properties. The main target compartment for p-cresol is water with 96.2 %, followed by air with 2.5 %, soil and sediment each with 0.7%.
