Additional information

Phototransformation in air :

The atmospheric oxidation half-life of difluoroacetic acid was estimated using the level III multimedia model. Difluoroacetic acid has got an estimated half life of 30 days and hydroxyl radical reaction rate constant as 0.000000000001cm3/molecule-sec at 25 degree C. Hence, it can be inferred that difluoroacetic acid is persistent in air medium.

Hydrolysis :

The Hydrolysis rate constant of difluoroacetic acid is estimated to be 0.0000000000005329 ( 0.5329 E-12) cm3/molecule-sec at half life of 20.073 Days. The estimated half life of the substance indicates that the substance is negligibly hydrolysable.
