Conclusions:
Biodegradation half-life of test substance 3'-Hydroxyacetophenone in soil was estimated to be 30 days (720 hrs)
Executive summary:

The half-life period of 3'-Hydroxyacetophenone (CAS No. 121 -71 -1) in soil was estimated using Level III Fugacity Model by EPI Suite version 4.1 estimation database (EPI suite, 2016). If released into the environment, 79% of the chemical will partition into soil according to the Mackay fugacity model level III. The half-life period of 3'-Hydroxyacetophenone in soil is estimated to be 30 days (720 hrs). Based on this half-life value of 3'-Hydroxyacetophenone, it is concluded that the chemical is not persistent in the soil environment and the exposure risk to soil dwelling animals is moderate to low.
