Hydrolysis is not likely to play a significant role in the degradation of this test substance in the environment. The test substance oxidizes in the atmosphere via reaction with photochemically produced OH radicals (Acerboni et al., 2001). Its DT50 in air is estimated to be 6.2 days. Atmospheric oxidation of this test substance in laboratory studies resulted in the formation of carbonyl fluoride and trifluoroacetyl fluoride. These degradates are incorporated into raindrops/aerosols in the atmosphere and in the water phase degraded to trifluoroacetic acid, hydrogen fluoride, and carbon dioxide (Acerboni et al., 2001).
