Description of key information

The atmospheric oxidation half-life of Phenetole was estimated using the level III multimedia model.It was estimated that the substance is not persistent in air medium as the half life period of Phenetole in air is only 0.58 day.This indicates that Phenetole is rapidly phototransformed in air.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in air:
0.58 d
