Description of key information

Allyl acetoacetate has got an estimated half life of 0.36 days (8.64 h ) and hydroxyl radical reaction rate constant as 0.000000000028cm3/molecule-sec at 25 degrees C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in air:
8.64 h
Degradation rate constant with OH radicals:
0 cm³ molecule-1 s-1

Additional information

The atmospheric oxidation half-life of allyl acetoacetate was estimated using the level III multimedia model. Allyl acetoacetate has got an estimated half life of 0.36 days (8.64 h ) and hydroxyl radical reaction rate constant as 0.000000000028cm3/molecule-sec at 25 degrees C. In addition, allyl acetoacetate disperses to only 1% in the air medium and hence, it can be inferred that allyl acetoacetate is not persistent in air medium and is easily phototransformed in air.
