Disposal Methods:
SRP: The most favorable course of action is to use an alternative chemical product with less inherent propensity for occupational exposure or environmental contamination. Recycle any unused portion of the material for its approved use or return it to the manufacturer or supplier. Ultimate disposal of the chemical must consider: the material's impact on air quality; potential migration in soil or water; effects on animal, aquatic, and plant life; and conformance with environmental and public health regulations.

Environmental Fate and Exposure Potential
Environmental Fate/Exposure Summary:
TERRESTRIAL FATE: Based on a classification scheme(1), an estimated Koc value of 750(SRC), determined from a log Kow of 2.75(2)and a regression-derived equation(3), indicates that androstenedione is expected to have moderate mobility in soil(SRC). Volatilization of androstenedione from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process(SRC) given an estimated Henry's Law constant of 3.7X10-8 atm-cu m/mole(SRC), using a fragment constant estimation method(4). Androstenedione is not expected to volatilize from dry soil surfaces(SRC) based upon an estimated vapor pressure of 1.8X10-6 mm Hg(SRC), determined from a fragment constant method(5). No biodegradation data were available(SRC, 2005).
AQUATIC FATE: Based on a classification scheme(1), an estimated Koc value of 750(SRC), determined from a log Kow of 2.75(2) and a regression-derived equation(3), indicates that androstenedione is expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment(SRC). Volatilization from water surfaces is not expected(3) based upon an estimated Henry's Law constant of 3.7X10-8 atm-cu m/mole(SRC), developed using a fragment constant estimation method(4). According to a classification scheme(5), an estimated BCF of 26(SRC), from its log Kow(2) and a regression-derived equation(6), suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC). No biodegradation data were available(SRC, 2005).
ATMOSPHERIC FATE: According to a model of gas/particle partitioning of semivolatile organic compounds in the atmosphere(1), androstenedione, which has an estimated vapor pressure of 1.8X10-6 mm Hg at 25 deg C(SRC), determined from a fragment constant method(2), will exist in both the vapor and particulate phases in the ambient atmosphere. Vapor-phase androstenedione is degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals(SRC); the half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be 3.5 hours(SRC), calculated from its rate constant of 1.1X10-10 cu cm/molecule-sec at 25 deg C(SRC) that was derived using a structure estimation method(3). Particulate-phase androstenedione may be removed from the air by wet and dry deposition(SRC). Androstenedione does not absorb light at wavelenghts >290 nm(4) and therefore is not expected to be susceptible to direct photolysis(SRC).
