Description of key information

Additional information

Phototransformation

After evaporation or exposure to air, the substance will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes (half-life = 3.2 h).

 

Hydrolysis

According to structural properties, hydrolysis is not expected. A study does not need to be performed since 2-(2-aminoethylamino)ethanol is readily biodegradable.

 

Biodegradation

Regarding the result of the key study on ready biodegradability, the substance is readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria in freshwater while it is not readily biodegradable in seawater.

 

Bioaccumulation

Significant accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.

 

Adsorption/Desorption

Adsorption to solid soil phase is not expected.

 

Henry's Law Constant

From the water surface, the substance will not evaporate into the atmosphere.

 

Distribution modelling

Over time, the uncharged substance will preferentially distribute into the compartment water (100%).
