The Henry's Law constant for 2-anthracenamine has been estimated to be 3.0X10-7 atm-cu m/mol at 25 deg C by combining a measured Henry's Law Constant for anthracene of 7.2X10-4 atm-cu m/mole at 25 deg C(1) with an estimation method based on structural bond contributions to intrinsic hydrophilic character(2,SRC). Given this value of Henry's Law constant and the relatively high Koc (15904 to 94276(4)) of 2-anthracenamine, it appears as though volatilization would not be a significant removal process from soil or water(3,SRC). This is apparent from the result of an EXAMS run for a model pond in which the effects of adsorption were considered. In this case, the volatilization half-life was determined to be 98 years(5,SRC).
