Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in water:
1.3 d

Additional information

One study on the investigation of the Phototransformation of the substance in water is available (Corgier, 2000) following GLP and EPA Guideline Subdivision N, 161-2. With an experimental half-life of 6.46 hours of irradiation under the Xenon lamp, corresponding to 1.3 days of summer sunlight in Florida (20 - 50 °North), sunlight can be considered as an important route of degradation in an aqueous environment.
