Some abiotic degradation of aldehydes in aqueous solution is expected
but no hydrolysis study was performed as the substance was found to be
readily biodgradable and is rather insoluble (1.6 mg/L in pure water).
Photodegradation in water and hydrolysis have both been observed in
preparatory work performed prior to undertaking an algae study (see
6.1.5) however half-lives in water cannot be accurately quantified from
this data for use in risk assessment. It should be noted that a
photolysis study is not a required endpoint under REACH.
Two valid ready biodegradability studies are available on the
biodegradability of the substance. One achieved >60% biodegradation but
failed the 10 day window, using a modified Sturm test under closed
conditions to prevent loss due to volatility. In a second study
following OECD Guideline 301F, the test substance was almost completely
mineralised (97% ) within 28 days meeting the 10 day window criterion.
A valid study was performed to estimate the adsorption coefficient (Koc)
of the substance by HPLC using method C19 and the OECD Guideline 121.
The substance was determined to have a log Koc value of 4.2 (equivalent
Due to its rather low volatility (0.068 Pa at 20°C) and its rather low
water solubility, the substance is expected to partition to the sediment
compartment, but due to its ready biodegrability its half-life in
sediment is expected to be low.
It should be noted that the substance disappeared fairly rapidly in the
sediment compartment (almost complete loss within 28 days) during the
sediment toxicity study with removal at lower concentrations faster than
those at higher ones. No HCA was observed in the pelagic compartment at
all during the sediment study which also confirms the highly adsorptive
nature expected in sediment and rapid degradability of the substance in
both water and sediment.
