Soil Adsorption / Mobility

Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc of triethylamine can be estimated to be 51(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that triethylamine is expected to have high mobility in soil. The pKa of triethylamine is 10.78(3), indicating that this compound will exist almost entirely in the cation form in the environment and cations generally adsorb more strongly to soils containing organic carbon and clay than their neutral counterparts(4).
