Description of key information

After evaporation or exposure to the air, the product will be slowly degraded by photochemical processes. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The photodegradation of 3,7-dimethyloctan-1-ol was calculated using SRC AOP v1.92. The half life of the substance was assumed to be 24.63 h at a rate constant of 15.64 E-12 cm³/molecule sec and OH radicals as sensitizer (BASF SE, 2011).
