Fisk (2002) IIA 02/18
Type of information:
read-across based on grouping of substances (category approach)
Adequacy of study:
key study
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
according to guideline
other: Atkinson method AOPWIN program v1.90
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The values were estimated using the atmospheric oxidation program (AOPWIN v.1.90). This program was developed by the Syracuse Research Corporation (SRC). It estimates the rate constant for the atmospheric, gas phase reaction between organic chemicals and photochemically produced hydroxyl radicals (and for some chemical types, ozone).

Being entirely structure based the rate constant is additive in which the number of specific atoms and groups in the molecule is the sole factor in the estimation process for any given structure. The contribution made by various relelvant reactions is taken from a database of values which are experimentally determined or represent expert judgement.
GLP compliance:
Specific details on test material used for the study:

AOPWIN obtained an OH rate constant of 218.7744 E-12 cm3/molecule.sec.

At the default EU concentration of OH radicals in the atmosphere this equates to a half life of 1.76 hours.
