Description of key information

Adsorption to solid soil phase is not expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Adsorption of the components of the reaction mass to soil and suspended matter is not expected. Both components rapidly hydrolyse in contact with water. The di-substituted component with a measured log Koc of 3.59 degrades to the mono-substituted component with a log Koc of 0.86 that again hydrolyses rapidly (Safepharm Laboratories Ltd 2002b). The half life of both components is < 4 hours. Based on the rapid degradation and the low log Koc of the hydrolysis products an adsorption is not expected.
