Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

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

No information is available for the technical isomeric mixture itself. But the half-life of 2-isopropylnaphthalene taken as supporting substance was determined in aqueous solutions under irradiation with simulated sunlight.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in water:
22.3 h

Additional information

Direct photolysis of 2-isopropylnaphthalene was investigated by irradiation of test material in aqueous solution (0.01 mMol/L) for 96 h with a high-pressure mercury lamp (100 W) (artificial sunlight). Half-life (DT50) in distilled water was determined to be 22.3 hours. Irradiation in salt water ( 4 hrs, 0.5 M NaCl) resulted in a half-life of 1 hour.
