Additional information

The calculated Koc value of 0.02798 L/kg for beta-alanine (KOCWIN v2.00) indicates a low sorption potential of beta-alanine to soil organic matter. Also the potential for volatilization from surface waters for this substance is low due to a calculated Henry’s law constant of 0.00000758 Pa-m3/mole (HENRYWIN v3.20 bond-method). According to the Mackay Fugacity Model Level I, the main target compartment of the environmental distribution of beta-alanine in a "unit world" is water with 100%.
