Description of key information

The EPI Suite has estimated that Methoxyacetophenone is expected to be found predominantly in soil and its persistence estimate is based on its transformation in this medium. Its half-life in soil, 30 days, does not exceeds the threshold of 120 days as per CLP criteria. Therefore, Methoxyacetophenone is estimated to be not persistent in the soil environment. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in soil:
30 d
at the temperature of:
25 °C
