QSAR atmospheric half-life from chapter 3.1.1.
Aquatic half-life derived by adding rate constants for surface water biodegradation (t½ = 15 d for readily biodegradable substances, TGD 2003, Part II, p. 54) and hydrolysis (see chapter 3.1.2) by using TGD 2003, Part II, equation 31, p. 57.
Soil half-life for readily biodegradable substances according to TGD 2003, Part II, p. 56.
In a Level II dynamic distribution model with a constant emission rate into the system of 1000 kg/h, assuming complete fugacity-driven distribution, with reaction within and advection out of the system, dl-Lactone is predicted to partition virtually completely to the aquatic compartment, while partitioning into other compartments, specifically into biota, is very low. Water is also the most important
compartment for substance losses, both (accounting for 30.3% of total losses) biodegradation and hydrolysis (69.4%).
through advection and reaction by Losses in water add up
to 99.7% while losses in the atmosphere through OH-radical-mediated degradation account for 0.2%. The predicted overall average residence time in the system of
