Additional information

Based upon a calculated log Koc adsorption to solid soil phase is not expected. From the water surface propionic acid will not evaporate into the atmosphere. The distribution of the substance between the environmental compartments was calculated by use of the Mackay LEVEL 1 v3.00 programme. The standard environmental properties for the calculation are drawn from a publication of Mackay (2001). Due to the results of the Mackay LEVEL 1 calculation, over time the substance will preferentially distribute into water.
