Conclusions:
Biodegradation half-life of test substance Benzyl phenylacetate in soil was estimated to be 30 days (720 hrs)
Executive summary:

The half-life period of Benzyl phenylacetate (CAS No.102 -16 -9) in soil was estimated using Level III Fugacity Model by EPI Suite version 4.1 estimation database (EPI suite, 2017). If released into the environment, 72.4% of the chemical will partition into soil according to the Mackay fugacity model level III. The half-life period of Benzyl phenylacetate in soil is estimated to be 30 days (720 hrs). Based on this half-life value of Benzyl phenylacetate, it is concluded that the chemical is not persistent in the soil environment and the exposure risk to soil dwelling animals is moderate to low.
