Phototransformation in air:
is a hydrocarbon UVCB. Standard tests for this endpoint are intended for
single substances and are not appropriate for this complex substance.
However, this endpoint is characterized using quantitative structure
property relationships for representative hydrocarbon structures that
comprise the hydrocarbon blocks used to assess the environmental risk of
this substance with the PETRORISK model (see Product Library in
PETRORISK spreadsheet attached to Section 13 of the dossier).
is a reaction in which a water molecule or hydroxide ion substitutes for
another atom or group of atoms present in a chemical resulting in a
structural change of that chemical. Potentially hydrolyzable groups
include alkyl halides, amides, carbamates, carboxylic acid esters and
lactones, epoxides, phosphate esters, and sulfonic acid esters (Neely,
1985). The lack of a suitable leaving group renders compounds resistant
chemical constituents that comprise hydrocarbons, C9, aromatics and
hydrocarbons, C10, aromatics, >1% naphthalene consist entirely of carbon
and hydrogen and do not contain hydrolyzable groups. As such, they have
a very low potential to hydrolyze. Therefore, this degradative process
will not contribute to their removal from the environment.
Phototransformation in water and soil:
direct photolysis of an organic molecule occurs when it absorbs
sufficient light energy to result in a structural transformation. The
absorption of light in the ultra violet (UV)-visible range, 110-750 nm,
can result in the electronic excitation of an organic molecule. The
stratospheric ozone layer prevents UV light of less than 290 nm from
reaching the earth's surface. Therefore, only light at wavelengths
between 290 and 750 nm can result in photochemical transformations in
conservative approach to estimating a photochemical degradation rate is
to assume that degradation will occur in proportion to the amount of
>290 nm absorbed by the molecule. This substance contains hydrocarbon
molecules that absorb UV light below 290 nm, a range of UV light that
does not reach the earth's surface. Therefore, this substance does not
have the potential to undergo photolysis in water, and this fate process
will not contribute to a measurable degradative loss of this substance
from the environment.
