5.2 Specific hazards arising from the chemical

Excerpt from ERG Guide 153 [Substances - Toxic and/or Corrosive (Combustible)]: Combustible material: may burn but does not ignite readily. When heated, vapors may form explosive mixtures with air: indoors, outdoors and sewers explosion hazards. Those substances designated with a (P) may polymerize explosively when heated or involved in a fire. Contact with metals may evolve flammable hydrogen gas. Containers may explode when heated. Runoff may pollute waterways. Substance may be transported in a molten form. (ERG, 2016)

5.3 Special protective actions for fire-fighters

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.

6.Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing vapours, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Avoid breathing dust. For personal protection see section 8.

6.2 Environmental precautions

Personal protection: complete protective clothing including self-contained breathing apparatus. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Cautiously neutralize remainder with soda lime. Then wash away with plenty of water.

6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, or holding area to contain liquid or solid material /SRP: If time permits, pits, ponds, lagoons, soak holes, or holding areas should be sealed with an impermeable flexible membrane liner./ Dike surface flow using soil, sand bags, foamed polyurethane, or foamed concrete. Absorb bulk liquid with fly ash or cement powder. Neutralize with agricultural lime (slaked lime), crushed limestone, or sodium bicarbonate.

  • Toxicity to algae: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: At an initial concentration of 100 mg/L, n-butanoic acid displayed a 72% theoretical biological oxygen demand (BODT) after 5 hours when incubated with activated sludge(1,2). n-Butanoic acid at an initial concentration of 5 ppm displayed a BODT of 76.6% in fresh water and 72.4% in sea water after 5 days(3). n-Butanoic acid had a BODT of 17.4%, 23.8%, 26.2%, and 27.7% after 6, 12, 18, and 24 hours, respectively, when incubated with an activated sludge seed at an initial concentration of 500 ppm(4). In a screening study, n-butanoic acid displayed a 46%, 48%, and 58% BODT after 2, 10, and 30 days, respectively, using a sewage seed(5). In a screening study using a sewage seed, n-butanoic acid had a 5 day BODT of 72-78% and a 20 day BODT of 92-99%(6,7). Several other screening studies with activated sludge inoculum have shown that n-butanoic acid is amenable to biodegradation under aerobic conditions(8-10).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 3.2 was calculated for n-butanoic acid(SRC), using a log Kow of 0.79(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

The Koc of n-butanoic acid is estimated as 64(SRC), using a log Kow of 0.79(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). Experimental Koc values for n-butanoic acid on a clastic mud (3.5% organic carbon), a lateritic muddy sand (1.3% organic carbon), and a fine carbonate sand (0.17% organic carbon) were 19.1, 27.6, and 14.7, respectively(3). According to a classification scheme(4), these estimated and experimental Koc values suggest that n-butanoic acid is expected to have very high to high mobility in soil. The percent of n-butanoic acid sorbed to a kalonite or montmorillonite clay at 22°C was 14.0% and 19.9% after 48 hours, respectively, which increased to 31.4% and 24.2%, respectively, after 144 hours(5). In a field study in which 100 ppm n-butanoic acid was injected underground, the retardation, relative to the linear ground-water velocity, was calculated to be 3%(6). N-butanoic acid is listed as a compound displaying an L-type adsorption isotherm, indicating that specific binding sites may be involved(7). Experimental studies in indicate that adsorption of n-butanoic acid to moist soil is dominated by attractive forces between the compound and soil and not by hydrophobic interactions(8). The pKa of n-butanoic acid is 4.82(9), indicating that this compound will primarily exist in the anion in the environment and anions generally do not adsorb more strongly to soils containing organic carbon and clay than their neutral counterparts(10).

12.5 Other adverse effects
