Adsorption / desorption


The log of the adsorption coefficient (KOC) of S-allyl O-pentyl dithiocarbonate was estimated to be log KOC = 2.1858 which is equal to a KOC value of 153.4 using the KOCWIN v2.00 QSARmethod. This value indicates that S-allyl O-pentyl dithiocarbonate will be adsorbed by organic carbon in soil.

S-allyl O-pentyl dithiocarbonate can be classified to be of very high mobility in soil according these results and does not have a high potential for adsorption to soil. S-allyl O-pentyl dithiocarbonate adsorbs strongly to sulphide minerals but has less affinity for surfaces in general. The KOC value of 153.4 also suggest this conclusion.



 Henry's Law constant


The estimated Henrys Law Constant (25 deg C) measured by calculation from EPI SuiteTM v4.1, HENRYWIN v3.20 Program was 1.425E-005 atm-m3/mole  (1.444E+000 Pa-m3/mole).

Distribution modelling.


S-allyl O-pentyl dithiocarbonate has no affinity to be in air and sediment. The direct emissions to soil and surface water are significant, therefore S-allyl O-pentyl dithiocarbonate  will be almost exclusively be found in soil and surface water.


Mackay fugacity modelling (level 3) indicates that, taking into account degradation and using inflow parameters which are consistent with the known production tonnage of this substance in, fugacity coefficient indicates that environmental concentrations in water are predicted to be  1.98e-010 (atm), in air (atm)   7.66e-012 and soil   1.54e-009 (atm) and sediment to be   1.66e-010 (atm).

These are negligible low levels. This can be considered a worse case prediction as it assumes all product is emitted with no emission control systems used. 


Other distribution data



These results suggest for S-allyl O-pentyl dithiocarbonate that direct and indirect exposure from distribution in media is unlikely. Based on low vapor pressure and low estimated log Pow, expected to partition to water and soil. Not expected to partition to air, sediments or biota.  Therefore testing for distribution in media does not need to be performed.
