Description of key information

Additional information

No studies investigating the transport and distribution behaviour of 2-ethylhexyl benzoate are available. Using KOCWIN program (v2.00), log Koc values of 4.29 and 3.62 were calculated, based on log Kow and on molecular connectivity index (MCI), respectively. These values indicate a considerable potential of the substance to adsorb to soil and sediment particles. Calculations with HENRYWIN Program (v3.20) yielded values of 23.7 and 25.6 for the Henry’s Law constant, based on the group and bond estimation method, respectively. These values indicate a gradual evaporation of the substance from the water surface into the atmosphere.
