Description of key information

The half-life period of (2R,5S)-5-methyl-2-(propan-2-yl)cyclohexan-1-one (CAS No.89 -80 -5) 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, 73.6% of the chemical will partition into soil according to the Mackay fugacity model level III. The half-life period of (2R,5S)-5-methyl-2-(propan-2-yl)cyclohexan-1-one in soil is estimated to be 30 days (720 hrs). Based on this half-life value of (2R,5S)-5 -methyl-2 -(propan-2 -yl)cyclohexan-1 -one, 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.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

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