Study design

Test substance input data:
Distribution of the parent substance 2,3-epoxypropyl neodecanoate was calculated using the following model input parameters: Molecular Weight 228.33, Temperature 20°C, Log Kow 2.58 (EPIWIN), Water Solubility 156.3g/m3 (EPIWIN), Vapor Pressure 1467 Pa (MSDS), Melting Point -68°C (MSDS)
Environmental properties:
Distribution data from the Mackay level I equilibrium model provide basic information on the potential partitioning behavior of a substance between selected environmental compartments (i.e., air, water, soil, sediment, suspended sediment, biota).

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The partitioning data represent a potential distribution for 2,3-epoxypropyl neodecanoate and its diol form. Data for the parent and hydrolyzed form are presented because of the potential for the parent to hydrolyze in the presence of water to the diol form. 2,3-Epoxypropyl neodecanoate the parent, is calculated to partition approximately 99.7% in to the air, which is explained by its relatively high vapor pressure. In comparison, the diol form is calculated to partition largely between water and soil with approximately 74.4% predicited to be in the water compartment. This shift in partitioning behavior is explained by the much lower vapor pressure of the diol form.
Executive summary:

Mackay, Level I Fugasitiy modeling was applied to predict the environmental distribution of the parent substance, 2,3 -epoxypropyl neodecanoate and the hydrolized diol form. The Mackay Level I model predicted that approximately 99.7% of 2,3 -epoxypropyl neodecanoate would partition into the air compartment. Due to its lower volatility, the hydrolyzed diol form was predicited to partition approximately 74.4% to the water compartment and 25% to the soil compartment.
