Additional information

Based on the low logKow of anisole, it is expected to have a low potential for adsorption onto soil and sediment (i.e. the substance has a logKow below 3). Moreover, as the substance is readily biodegradable, it is considered to decompose rapidly in aquatic compartment.

For the calculation in the CSA, the equation of the TGD (Sabljic and Günsten, 1995) is applied to derive the logKoc value of the substance from its log Kow value. As anisole is an organic substance with no specific functional group, the equation for "nonhydrophics" is selected as follows:

LogKoc = 0.52 * logKow + 1.02 = 0.52 * 2.62 + 1.02 = 2.38

[LogKoc: 2.38]
