EC number: 205-594-7 | CAS number: 143-24-8
ABIOTIC DEGRADATION IN AIR DIRECT PHOTOLYSIS in air
Tetragylme does not absorb light >290 nm (ozone band) and therefore a direct photolysis in air will not occur.
INDIRECT PHOTOLYSIS in air
OH radical induced indirect photolysis of Tetraglyme can be estimated with US EPA AOPWIN Program estimating low degradation half-life of 0.2 days (12-hr day, 1.5E6 OH/cm3).
ABIOTIC DEGRADATION IN WATER
The ether function of Tetraglyme can only be cleaved under very acidic conditions. Under environmental conditions (pH 4 - 9) cleaveage is unlikly. This was confirmed by a hydrolysis test according to OECD 111 at pH 4, 7 and 9 (Read across from Diglyme). No transformation was observed after 5 days at 50 deg. C. Diglyme is registered under REACH with the Registration No. 01-2119485900-34-0000.
DIRECT PHOTOLYSIS in water
Tetragylme does not absorb light >290 nm (ozone band) and therefore a direct photolysis in water will not occur.
INDIRECT PHOTOLYSIS in water
ABIOTIC DEGRADATION IN SOIL
DIRECT PHOTOLYSIS in soil
Tetragylme does not absorb light >290 nm (ozone band) and therefore a direct photolysis on soil surface will not occur.
INDIRECT PHOTOLYSIS in soil
