Description of key information

Half life period of 3-Phenoxybenzyl alcoholin water is observed to be 15  days (360 hrs.) while in sediment it is 135 days (3240 hrs). Based on these half life values of 3-Phenoxybenzyl alcohol, it is concluded that the chemical is not persistent in water and persistent in sediment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in freshwater:
15 d
at the temperature of:
25 °C
Half-life in freshwater sediment:
135 d
at the temperature of:
25 °C
