Description of key information

Additional information

The substance has a low Kow and a high water solubility, therefore has a low potential for adsorption to soil or sediments, and a low potential for bioaccumulation in biota. If released to air, Dipropylene glycol methyl ether will rapidly react in the atmosphere with hydroxyl radicals. If released directly to water, the substance will remain in the water compartment and ultimately biodegrade, as the substance meets the criteria for “ready biodegradation reaching the 10 day window”.
