Description of key information

Additional information

After evaporation or exposure to the atmosphere, the substance is expected to photodegrade by reaction with OH-radicals with a half-life of about 8.8 days (EPIWin, AOP v1.92) [BASF AG, 2007]. No data on phototransformation in water and in soil are available. Since 1.2-epoxybutane is readily biodegradable, the study on these points are not required. In contact with water the substance will hydrolyse slowly [Gervasi & al., 1985].
