Description of key information

A measured Koc value of 3760 (log Koc 3.58) indicates that the substance has potential to adsorb to sediment/soil.

Henry coefficient: To assess the volatilisation potential of the substance a Henry's law constant was calculated using EUSES, which showed a value of 2.49 Pa. m3/mol (at 12 °C). Based on this value some partitioning from water to air may be expected.

Based on Level III environmental distribution modelling using EPISUITE (assuming equal and continuous releases to air, water and soil) using the CAS number 18479-57-7 and the measured physico-chemical parameters (water solubility and log Kow) as input, it is estimated that the majority of the substance released to the environment will partition mainly into soil (73.1%) and water (25.2%) with minor amounts to air (1.5%) and sediment (0.1%).

The SimpleTreat model (4.0) simulates the distribution of the substance in a Sewage Treatment Plant. Model calculations (default assumptions) show that 65.8% of the substance will be degraded and that 9.8%, 23.7% and 0.72% will partition to water, sludge and air, respectively.
