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

Additional information


Diisopropylbenzene (DIPB) does not undergo significant abiotic hydrolysis.



Biodegradation in a ready biodegradation study showed only 3 % degradation over three days, but this is likely affected by the substances low water solubility (<0.1 mg/L).



DIPB has a potential to bioconcentrate with experimental results in fish. An experimental BCF study with fish shows kinetic lipid normalized BCF values < 2000. 


Transport and distribution:

DIPB also has a relatively high log Koc value of 3.8 suggesting a tendency to sorb to soils and sediments.
