Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as high water solubility (≤ 50 g/L), low volatilization potential from the water phase (Henry’s Law constant: < 1 Pa m³/mole) and low potential for adsorption (log Koc: 1 - 1.52), the surface water is expected to be the main target for environmental distribution of 1,3-butylene diacetate (CAS 1117-31-3). However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in this compartment.
