Additional information

If released to air, the test substance is expected to exist in both the vapour and particulate phases. In the vapour-phase, it is expected to quickly degrade (expected half-life in air of about 6 hours) in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals. Removal in the particulate-phase will occur primarily as dry deposition as it is not expected to partition to the water phase. If released to soil, it is expected to partition strongly to soil resulting in a low mobility based upon a Koc of 5.18. Volatilisation from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process. If released into water, it is expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment in the water column based upon the Koc. Volatilisation from water surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process.
