Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

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), 2-nitropropane will remain primarily in the atmospheric compartment, with some deposition to surface water and soil. 2-Nitropropane is slowly reacted in the atmosphere, and therefore advection is the dominant process affecting atmospheric fate. If released directly to water, the substance will remain dissolved in water; 2-nitropropane may undergo limited biodegradation under some conditions. If released to soil, 2-nitropropane will be primarily dissolved in soil pore water (groundwater); 2-nitropropane may undergo limited biodegradation under some conditions.
