Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as high water solubility (500 g/L), low volatilization potential from the water phase (vapour pressure < 0.1 Pa) and low potential for adsorption (log Koc 2.4573), the surface water is expected to be the main target for environmental distribution of propylparaben (CAS 94-13-3). However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in this compartment.
