Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

phototransformation in air
Type of information:
calculation (if not (Q)SAR)
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
accepted calculation method
Justification for type of information:
This organic substance is expected to have a short-life in air because of the reaction with hydroxyl radicals, by starting on its double carbon bond and its acetate ester function.
In consequence, it appears as acceptable to use the AOPWIN prediction to assess this endpoint.
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
QSAR AOPWIN prediction
38.222 min
Test condition:
Reaction with ozone
Key result
1.095 h
Test condition:
Reaction with hydroxyl radicals
Validity criteria fulfilled:
Degradation of item in air can be concluded as rapid, as half-life of item is estimated by AOPWIN, for reaction with hydroxyle radicals and ozone, as equal to 1.095 hours and 38.222 minutes, respectively.
Executive summary:

------------------- SUMMARY (AOP v1.92): HYDROXYL RADICALS (25 deg C) --------

Hydrogen Abstraction = 4.0086 E-12 cm3/molecule-sec

Reaction with N, S and -OH = 0.0000 E-12 cm3/molecule-sec

Addition to Triple Bonds = 0.0000 E-12 cm3/molecule-sec

Addition to Olefinic Bonds = 113.2000 E-12 cm3/molecule-sec

Addition to Aromatic Rings = 0.0000 E-12 cm3/molecule-sec

Addition to Fused Rings = 0.0000 E-12 cm3/molecule-sec

OVERALL OH Rate Constant = 117.2086 E-12 cm3/molecule-sec

HALF-LIFE = 0.091 Days (12-hr day; 1.5E6 OH/cm3)

HALF-LIFE = 1.095 Hrs

------------------- SUMMARY (AOP v1.91): OZONE REACTION (25 deg C) -----------

OVERALL OZONE Rate Constant = 43.174999 E-17 cm3/molecule-sec

HALF-LIFE = 0.027 Days (at 7E11 mol/cm3)

HALF-LIFE = 38.222 Min

NOTE: Reaction with Nitrate Radicals May Be Important!

Experimental Database: NO Structure Matches
