Description of key information

Additional information

This substance has high water solubility (miscible), a low vapor pressure (0.45 hPa at 20°C), and low log Kow (-0.63 at 20°C). The substance has a low potential for adsorption to soil or sediments or bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms, and a low potential to volatilize from water or soil to the atmosphere. 2-amino-2-methylpropanol is hydrolytically stable in water. The compound meets the criteria of ready biodegradability in an OECD 301F Manometric Respirometry test. Upon release to the atmosphere the compound will react with hydroxyl radicals with a predicted half-life of 0.6 days.
