Ecotoxicity: Fish: Rainbow trout: LC50 = 0.3 mg/L; 96 Hr.; UnspecifiedFish: Fathead Minnow: LC50 = 0.87 mg/L; 96 Hr.; Flow-throughFish: Bluegill/Sunfish: LC50 = 290.0 mg/L; 96 Hr.; Static ConditionWater flea Daphnia: EC50 = 1.0 mg/L; 48 Hr.; Unspecified No data available.
Environmental: TERRESTRIAL FATE: Biodegradation is expected to be the dominant fate process of triphenyl phosphate (TPP) in soil; screening tests exhibited aerobic half-lives of about 4 days or less in natural waters. Aqueous hydrolysis is expected to aid in soil degradation especially under alkaline conditions (half-lives of 0.23 to 7.5 days at pH 9.5 to pH 8.2). Based on an estimated Koc range of 3,066 to 7,481, TPP should be slightly mobile to immobile in soil. Biodegradation is an important removal process in aerobic waters with aerobic half-lives of about 4 days or less.
Physical: Vapor phase triphenyl phosphate is degraded in the ambient atmosphere by reaction with photochemically formed hydroxyl radicals; the half-life for this reaction in air can be estimated to be about 1.4 days. Particulate phase triphenyl phosphate may be susceptible to dry deposition and wet deposition (rainfall).
Other: Do not empty into drains.
