Key value for chemical safety assessment

at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

For butyric acid, a Henry's law constantof 2.20E-7 atm m³/mol was determined in a study using equilibrium partial pressure measurements over aqueous solutions at 298.15 K (25°C) (Khan, 1992).

A calculated Henry's law constant of 5.87E-007 atm*m3/mol (group contribution method) and of 9.65E-007 atm*m3/mol (bond contribution method) was obtained using the program HENRYWIN v 3.2 (Part of US EPA EPI Suite v4.00) (ECT, 2009). Measured and calculated HCL match satisfactorily.

Butyric acid volatilizes only to a low degree from water.
