Additional information

Most of the monitoring data compiled in the IUCLID were sampled and analysed between 1970 and 2000. Current studies dealing with the occurrence of acetophenone in the environment are scarce. Acetophenone was detected in surface waters samples collected from 139 streams (max. 0.41 µg/L, median: 0.15 µg/L; USA, 1999 -2000). Furthermore, acetophenone was identified but not quantified in ground water samples at and near a landfill (USA, 2000). There are hints that acetophenone occurs naturally in the environment.
