Description of key information

Additional information

This substance has high water solubility, moderate vapor pressure, and low log Kow. The substance therefore has a low potential for adsorption to soil or sediments, and moderate potential to volatilize from water or soil to the atmosphere. If released to air (the most probable emission route), 1-nitropropane will remain primarily in the atmospheric compartment, with some deposition to surface water and soil. Since 1-Nitropropane is slowly reacted in the atmosphere, advection is expected to be the dominant process affecting atmospheric fate. If released directly to water, the substance will remain dissolved in water and is expected to be biodegraded. If released to soil, 1-nitropropane will be primarily dissolved in soil pore water (groundwater), and is expected to be biodegraded.
