0 cm³ molecule-1 s-1

Additional information

No experimental studies investigating the phototransformation in air of 2-(1-methylethoxy)ethyl acetate (CAS 19234-20-9) are available. Results from AOPWIN v1.92 show that the substance is susceptible to undergo rapid indirect photodegradation in air. The estimated half-life for the reaction with OH-radicals is 18.287 h (24 h day; OH-concentration: 0.5E+06 OH/cm³) (Corti, 2011).
