Release to air, with an estimated vapour pressure of 10 -41 Pa at 25 deg C indicates that test item will not exist if not in dust particles in the atmosphere.

In vapour-phase the target substance will be degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals; the half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be 3.45 hours; degradation in sunlight also occurs. I

If released to soil, it is expected to be a substance with a low potential for adsorption based on the partition coefficient log Kow of -3.2 (REACH&Colours Kft, 2012).

The substance is not readily biodegradable and not hydrolisable at 25°C (half-life > 1 year). An estimated BCF of 3.16 l/kg ww suggests that the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low.
