Details on study design:
Level III Fugacity model
EPI Suite contains a Level III fugacity model. In general, fugacity models predict the partitioning of an organic compound in an evaluative environment. A Level III model assumes steady-state but not equilibrium conditions. The Level III model in EPI Suite predicts partitioning between air, soil, sediment and water using a combination of default parameters and various input parameters that may be user defined or estimated by other programs within EPI Suite.

The model environment consists of 4 main compartments: air, water sediment and soil. There are also sub-compartments such as an aerosol phase, suspended solids, and biota phase, within specific main compartments. A fixed temperature of 25ᵒC is assumed. Mass transport between the compartments via volatilization, diffusion, deposition and runoff are modeled. level III models is a steady state, non-equilibrium model. Steady state conditions mean that the change in concentration of a chemical in each compartment (i) with respect to time eventually approaches zero. The model does not assume that a common equilibrium (fugacity) exists between the phases, so if a chemical is emitted into one compartment it can partition to the other compartments. Loss of chemical occurs through two processes: reaction and advection. Reaction is the biotic or abiotic degradation of the chemical that is calculated using the user specified or model calculated half-lives of the chemical in each of the 4 main compartments. Advection processes are considered for the air, water and sediment compartments. Advection is the removal of chemical from a compartment through losses other than degradation (reaction). The rate of advection in a given compartment is determined by a flow rate (m3/hour), calculated by dividing the volume of the compartment by an advection time.

Conclusions:
Estimated half life of test chemical 1-[(2,4-dimethylphenyl)diazenyl]-2-naphthol in water was 60 days (1440 h) and in sediment estimated to be 541.66 days (13000 h).
Executive summary:

Estimation Programs Interface (EPI Suite, 2017) prediction model was run to predict the half-life in water and sediment for the test compound 1 -[(2,4 -dimethylphenyl)diazenyl]-2 -naphthol (CAS No. 3118 -97 -6). If released in to the environment, 4.25% of the chemical will partition into water according to the Mackay fugacity model level III and the half-life period of 1 -[(2,4 -dimethylphenyl)diazenyl]-2 -naphthol in water is estimated to be 60 days (1440 hrs). The half-life (60 days estimated by EPI suite) indicates that the chemical is persistent in water and the exposure risk to aquatic animals is moderate to high whereas the half-life period of 1 -[(2,4 -dimethylphenyl)diazenyl]-2 -naphthol in sediment is estimated to be 541.66 days (13000 hrs). Based on this half-life value, it indicates that 1 -[(2,4 -dimethylphenyl)diazenyl]-2 -naphthol is persistent in sediment.
