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.
