Description of key information

Additional information

Phototransformation


After evaporation or exposure to the air, the product will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes.


No direct photolysis is to be expected in the hydrosphere, since the substance does not adsorb light in the UV spectrum > 260 nm.


 


Hydrolysis


The substance is expected to be hydrolytically stable under environmental conditions due to the structural properties of the substance. In addition the substance is readily biodegradable. 


 


Biodegradation


The substance is readily biodegradable (according to OECD criteria).


 


Bioaccumulation


The substance does not accumulate significantly in organisms.


 


Transport and distribution:


Adsorption / desorption


Adsorption of the substance to the solid soil phase is not expected under environmentally relevant conditions.


 


Henry's Law constant


From the water surface, the substance will not evaporate into the atmosphere.


 


Distribution modelling


Over time, the substance will preferentially distribute into the compartments water (97.1%) and air (2.9%). However, since the substance will be ionized under environmentally relevant conditions, the distribution into water may still be underestimated.
