Additional information

After exposure to soil, significant adsorption to solid soil phase (e.g. clay) is not expected. From the water surface Hexane-1,6-diol is not expected to evaporate into the atmosphere. The distribution of the substance between the environmental compartments was calculated by use of the Mackay LEVEL 1 v3.00 program. The standard environmental properties for the calculation are drawn from a publication of Mackay (2001). Due to the results of the Mackay LEVEL 1 calculation, over time the substance will preferentially distribute into water.
