Additional information

Tripropylene glycol butyl ether highers has a low octanol-water partition coefficient (Kow) and a high water solubility. If released to water, the compound will tend to remain in the water compartment. The substance has a low potential for adsorption to soil or sediments or bioaccumulation in aquatic organisms.

Tripropylene glycol butyl ether highers is readily biodegradable based on a read-across approach. Upon introduction to the aqueous environment, the compound is expected to rapidly biodegrade. If release to air, the compound will rapidly degrade due to reaction with hydroxyl radicals.
