Description of key information

Additional information

The substance is considered to be hydrolytically stable at pH 4, 7, and 9, with a hydrolysis half-life greater than 1 year at 25 °C. The substance is not readily-biodegradable.

The substance is expected to have a low potential for aquatic / sediment bioaccumulation because it has a low octanol water partition coefficient (log Kow = 1.14).

Using KOCWIN, version 2.00, the adsorption coefficient of the test item was estimated to be 0.136, log10 Koc -0.866 (Kow method). These values indicate that the test item will have a very high environmental mobility. However, it is anticipated that partitioning forces with the organic carbon content of soils and sediments may not be the dominant force controlling the mobility of the test item in the environment. Strong ionic interaction with clay particles, for example, will also influence the fate of the test item in the environment.
