2,2-Dimethylpropane

CAS RN: 463-82-1

Volatilization

The Henry's Law constant for 2,2-dimethylpropane is estimated as 2.2 atm-cu m/mole(SRC) derived from its vapor pressure, 1290 mm Hg(1), and water solubility, 33.2 mg/L(2). This Henry's Law constant indicates that 2,2-dimethylpropane is expected to volatilize rapidly from water surfaces(3). Based on this Henry's Law constant, the volatilization half-life from a model river (1 m deep, flowing 1 m/sec, wind velocity of 3 m/sec)(3) is estimated as 2.5 hours(SRC). The volatilization half-life from a model lake (1 m deep, flowing 0.05 m/sec, wind velocity of 0.5 m/sec)(3) is estimated as 3.4 days(SRC). 2,2-Dimethylpropane's estimated Henry's Law constant indicates that volatilization from moist soil surfaces may occur(SRC). The potential for volatilization of 2,2-dimethylpropane from dry soil surfaces may exist based upon its vapor pressure(1).
