Additional information

The biphenyl substance is slightly soluble in water, has low vapor pressure of 1.19 Pa at 25 °C, a moderate log Kow value of 4.008, and moderate log Koc value of 3.19. Collectively, these properties indicate a low to moderate potential for volatilization from water to the atmosphere, and that, once emitted to water the substance will largely remain with the aquatic compartment and partition between dissolved and adsorbed states. The substance exhibits low to moderate potential for adsorption to soil, and this affinity for soil does not appear to retard or prevent biodegradation in soil or sediment environments.
