Additional information

ADSORPTION / DESORPTION

The Exposure Modelling program EUSES 2,1 calculates for the Koc of Tetraglyme 3.8 L/kg (non hydrophobic substances) which means that sorption to solid is very low and an adsorption/desorption study is not warranted.

AIR / WATER PARTITIONING

AIR/WATER PARTITIONING UNDER EQUILIBRIUM CONDITIONS

Tetraglyme can be mixed with water in every proportion which means that partitioning between air and water will be very low. The Exposure Modelling program EUSES 2.1 calculates e.g. for the Henry's law constant 1E-3 Pa*m3/mole which corresponds to the unitless air/water partioning coefficient of 2.0 E-7.
