Level I:  Predicted equilibrium distribution among air, water, soil, and sediments

Emission Scenario:
   100,000 kg total emissions          
Percentage and amount distributed to:
                Air                Water                   Soil             Sediment

        61.9%           37.9%             0.2%              0.1%
    6.2 x 10^4 kg  3.8 x 10^4 kg  2.5 x 10^2 kg               5.5 kg

This substance has high water solubility, moderate vapor pressure, and low log Kow.
  In the absence of advective and reactive processes, these physical properties dictate that the substance will be distributed primarily among the air and water compartments at equilibrium.  The substance has a low potential for adsorption to soil or sediments, and moderate potential to volatilize from water.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
This substance has high water solubility, moderate vapor pressure, and low log Kow. The substance therefore has a low potential for adsorption to soil or sediments, and moderate potential to volatilize from water or soil to the atmosphere. If released to air (the most probable emission route), 1-nitropropane will remain primarily in the atmospheric compartment, with some deposition to surface water and soil. Since 1-Nitropropane is slowly reacted in the atmosphere, advection is expected to be the dominant process affecting atmospheric fate. If released directly to water, the substance will remain dissolved in water and is expected to be biodegraded. If released to soil, 1-nitropropane will be primarily dissolved in soil pore water (groundwater), and is expected to be biodegraded.
