Additional information

The calculated Koc indicates a low potential for adsorption to soil, sediment, and suspended solids (BASF AG, 2007). Due to the Henry's law constant, volatilisation from the water surface is not expected to be an important fate path. According to Mackay Level I modeling, epsilon-Caprolactam will distribute almost completely into water (100 %). Only very small amounts will partition to sediment (0.01 %) and soil (0.01 %).
