In the model adipic acid is treated as a type 1 chemical, i.e. the chemical partitions into all environmental media. Estimation is carried at an environmental temperature of 25 °C.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The distribution of adipic acid in a "unit world" was calculated according to the Mackay fugacity model level I (Currenta, 2009) based on the physico-chemical properties. The main target compartment for adipic acid is water with 97.89%, followed by air with 2.09 %, and minor amounts for soil and sediment.
