Description of key information

Additional information

Based on the available data, the environmental distribution of heptanal can be summarised as follows:

As the substance is soluble in water and has a low potential for adsorption, its main target environmental compartment will be the water compartment where it is no expected to persist due to its ready biodegradability potential. It has the ability to volatilise from water due to its moderate Henry's Law Constant. However, based on estimated data on its indirect photolysis in the air, it is not expected to be persistent in this compartment.
