The Kd of benzophenone for red earth, Australia, was determined to be 2.71 which corresponds to a Koc of about 430. The average of three soils resulted in a Koc of 517. Based on these findings, benzophenone is expected to have moderate to low mobility in soil. Henry's Law constant of benzophenone was calculated using EPIWIN v4.0, HENRYWIN v3.20. The calculation yielded a Henry's Law Constant H=0.197 Pa x m³/mol. This Henry's Law constant indicates that benzophenone is expected to be moderately volatile from water surfaces.
