Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties (high water solubility and low log Pow) THEIC does not have a tendency for adsorption to sediment or soil but will remain dissolved in the water phase. This expected behavior is further supported by the result of the bioaccumulation study performed with fish in which no accumulation potential was found (BCF < 1.6).

Volatilisation of THEIC is not to be expected due to its high water solubility and low vapour pressure.
