Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

phototransformation in air
Type of information:
calculation (if not (Q)SAR)
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
accepted calculation method
Principles of method if other than guideline:
calculated using EPI Suite Version 4.11
GLP compliance:
Estimation method (if used):
PHOTOCHEMICAL REACTION WITH OH RADICALS- Concentration of OH radicals: 500000- Degradation rate constant: 0.00000000001747 cm³/molecule-sec- Temperature for which rate constant was calculated: 25 °C- Computer programme: SRC AOP v1.92 - Calculated t 1/2 is based on a 24 h day
22.03 h
The calculated half-life for phototransformation of cyclohexanol in air is 22.03 hours.
Executive summary:

The phototransformation of cyclohexanol in air was predicted with the software tool SRC AOP v1.92. This calculation resulted in a half-life of 22.03 hours.

Description of key information

DT50 = 22.03 hours (EPISUITE calculation, 2017)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in air:
22.03 h

Additional information

A calculation using AOP v1.92 was performed for the estimation of the indirect photodegradation in the atmosphere. For this calculation a 24-hour day as well as a sensitizer-concentration (OH-radicals) of 500,000 molecules/cm³ were assumed. The calculated rate constant is 0.00000000001747 cm³/molecule/sec corresponding to an estimated half-life in the troposphere of 22.03 hours. After evaporation or exposure to the air, the product will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes.
