MacKay Level III modeling suggested that the half-life of Vinyl 2-ethylhexanoate in water was approximately 208 hours. Further MacKay modeling found that if released equally to the environmental compartments, approximately 55.6% of Vinyl 2-ethylhexanoate will transition to soil, 39% to water and 5% to air. If released solely to air, 99.1% of Vinyl 2-ethylhexanoate will remain in the atmosphere. When released to the water compartment, 97% of the Vinyl 2-ethylhexanoate will remain in the water. An estimated Log Koc = 2.851 for Vinyl 2 -ethylhexanoate suggest that the substance will adsorb to organic matter in moderate amounts, with a slow migration potential to groundwater.
