Additional information

Based on the moderate vapour pressure combined with the good water solubility, cyclohexanone will slowly evaporate from the water surface into the atmosphere. Furthermore the substances has a low potential for adsorption to solid soil. Hence, in the environment cyclohexanonewill mainly distribute into the compartment water. In natural water the substance will not exist for extended time periods due to degradation by microorganisms, since cyclohexanone is readily biodegradable.
