DT50 (24h-day)= 16.5 hours

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental data evaluating the potential for photodegradation of ethyl 3,5 -dichloro-4 -hexadecyloxycarbonyloxybenzoate (AF-366) in air are available.Therefore, a QSAR calculation using the AOPWIN v1.92 program has been performed instead, resulting in an estimated half-life of 16.5 hours (reaction with OH-radicals, 24h-day). This value indicates that the substance is susceptible to undergo rapid indirect photodegradation in air.
