Description of key information

Phenetole is estimated not persistent (readily biodegradable) in the soil environment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in soil:
30 d
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

The PBT Profiler & EPI Suite has estimated that Phenetole is expected to be found predominantly in soil and its persistence estimate is based on its transformation in this medium.Its half-life in soil, 30 days (720 hrs). does not exceeds the criteria of 120 days Therefore,Phenetoleis estimated not to be persistent in the soil environment.
