Description of key information

2-phenoxyethanol was calculated to degrade to 50% after 11.8 hours in air.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The photodegradation in air of 2-phenoxyethanol based on the intensity of sunlight was calculated using EPIWIN AOP v1.92 (SRC). The concentration of the sensitizer (OH) was 500000 molecules/cm3 and the degradation rate was calculated to be 50% in 11.8 hours.
