Adsorption / desorption



— based on the physicochemical properties the substance can be expected to have a low potential for adsorption (e.g. the substance has a low octanol water partition coefficient), or

— the substance and its degradation products decompose rapidly.

The log of the adsorption coefficient (KOC) of Isopropyl Ethyl Thionocarbamate (IPETC ) was estimated to be log KOC = 1.8988which is equal to a KOC value of 79.22 using theKOCWIN v2.00 QSARmethod.

This value indicates that Isopropyl Ethyl Thionocarbamate (IPETC ) will be adsorbed by organic carbon in soil.Isopropyl Ethyl Thionocarbamate (IPETC ) can be classified to be of very high mobility in soilaccording these resultsand does not have a high potential for adsorption to soil. Isopropyl Ethyl Thionocarbamate (IPETC )adsorbs strongly to sulphide minerals but has less affinity for surfaces in general. The KOC value of 79.22 also suggest this conclusion.


The estimated Soil Adsorption Coefficient was 79.22 L/kg measured by calculation from EPI SuiteTM v4.1 Program. This is Exposure Assessment Tools and Models made from EPA (Environmental Protection Agency

 Henry's Law constant


The estimated Henrys Law Constant (25 deg C) measured by calculation from EPI SuiteTM v4.1, HENRYWIN v3.20 Program was 4.71E-006 atm-m3/mole (4.78E-001 Pa-m3/mole) , which is almost zero.

Distribution modelling.


Isopropyl Ethyl Thionocarbamate (IPETC ) has no affinity to be in air and sediment. The direct emissions to soil and surface water are significant, therefore Isopropyl Ethyl Thionocarbamate (IPETC ) will be almost exclusively be found in soil and surface water.


Mackay fugacity modelling (level 3) indicates that, taking into account degradation and using inflow parameters which are consistent with the known production tonnage of this substance in, fugacity coefficient indicates that environmental concentrations in water are predicted to be 5.95e-011 (atm), in air (atm)  1.29e-011and soil  7.32e-010 (atm) and sediment to be  5.18e-011 (atm).

These are negligible low levels. This can be considered a worse case prediction as it assumes all product is emitted with no emission control systems used.


Other distribution data


 These results suggest for Isopropyl Ethyl Thionocarbamate (IPETC) that direct and indirect exposure from distribution in media is unlikely.

Based on low vapor pressure and low estimated log Pow, expected to partition to water and soil. Not expected to partition to air, sediments or biota.


Therefore testing for distribution in media does not need to be performed.
