Conclusions:
The half-life period of 4-Methoxyphenylacetic acid (CAS No. 104-01-8) in soil was estimated using Level III Fugacity Model by EPI Suite version 4.1 estimation database. Biodegradation half-life of test substance 4-Methoxyphenylacetic acid in soil was estimated to be 30 days (720 hrs).
Executive summary:

The half-life period of 4-Methoxyphenylacetic acid (CAS No. 104-01-8) in soil was estimated using Level III Fugacity Model by EPI Suite version 4.1 estimation database (EPI suite, 2017). If released into the environment, 72.5% of the chemical will partition into soil according to the Mackay fugacity model level III. The half-life period of 4-Methoxyphenylacetic acid in soil is estimated to be 30 days (720 hrs). Based on this half-life value of 4-Methoxyphenylacetic acid, it is concluded that the chemical is not persistent in the soil environment and the exposure risk to soil dwelling animals is moderate to low.
