Description of key information

Estimated half-lives for the components of this UVCB substance range from 1.1 to 2.7 hours. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in air:
2.7 h

Additional information

Estimated second-order rate constants for reaction of hydroxyl radical with lowest and highest-molecular weight homologues of the UVCB substance range from 1.4E-10 to 3.7E-10 cm3/molecule*sec. Corresponding half-lives range from 1.1 to 2.7 hours, based on a default hydroxyl radical concentration of 500,000 molecules/cm3. The longest estimated half-life, associated with the lowest-molecular weight homologue, is used to represent the atmospheric half-life of all homologous components of the UVCB substance in the chemical safety assessment.
