Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The half-life of t-butylphenyldiphenyl phosphate (TBPDPP) in a river die-away test was 1 day at 50 and 500 ppb levels. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in freshwater:
1 d
at the temperature of:
24 °C

Additional information

A river die-away study involved exposure of S-154 to Mississippi River water in sealed bottles. The die-away or decrease in concentration of the test chemical was monitored as a function of time by sacrifice and analysis of selected bottle contents.Rapid biotransformation rates were observed for the S-154 major components, triphenyl phosphate (TPP) and t-butylphenyldiphenyl phosphate (TBPDPP), with half lives of <0.5 and 1 day respectively at 50 and 500 ppb levels. A lesser component, di(t-butylphenyl) phenyl phosphate (DTBPPP) disappeared more slowly with a half life of 7 days. In autoclaved river water, the composite half life for all components was 29 days indicating that chemical transformation was not a significant route.
