Additional information

Phototransformation in Air :

The atmospheric oxidation half life of 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol was estimated using level III multimedia model it indicates that 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol is not persistent in air medium as the half life period of 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol in air is only 1.9days. From this it is concluded that 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol is rapidly phototransformed in air.

Hydrolysis :

Hydrolysis Rate Constant of 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol was estimated to be 0.000000000008603 cm3/molecule-sec at half life of 1.243 days.This indicates that 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol is slowly hydrolysable.

Phototransformation in Water :

No experimental data available. As this study is not a standard information requirement in REACH and there is no indication from the CSA on the need to investigate further the fate and behaviour of the substance (Annex X requirement), no further testing is considered necessary.

Phototransformation in Soil :

No experimental data available. As this study is not a standard information requirement in REACH and there is no indication from the CSA on the need to investigate further the fate and behaviour of the substance (Annex X requirement), no further testing is considered necessary.
