Additional information

Hexyl D-glucoside (CAS: 54549-24-5) is not expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment based on the log Koc of 0.7 – 1.7. If the substance is exposed to water it will not evaporate into the atmosphere from the water surface because of its Henry’s Law constant of 5.98E-017 Pa m³/mol – 6.51E-009 Pa m³/mol and will remain in the water phase. However, due to the ready biodegradability the substance will not persist in this compartment.
