Furfuryl Alcohol

CAS RN:98-00-0

Volatilization

The Henry's Law constant for furfuryl alcohol is estimated as 7.9X10-8 atm-cu m/mole(SRC) derived from its vapor pressure, 0.609 mm Hg(1), and an assigned value for water solubility of 1X10+6 mg/L (miscible)(2). This Henry's Law constant indicates that furfuryl alcohol is expected to be essentially nonvolatile from water surfaces(3). Furfuryl alcohol's estimated Henry's Law constant indicates that volatilization from moist soil surfaces is not expected to occur(SRC). Furfuryl alcohol may volatilize from dry soil surfaces(SRC) based upon its vapor pressure(1).
