Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Based on a vapour pressure of 0.06 hPa and a water solubility of 0.6 g/L a Henry constant of 1.4 Pa m³/mol can be calculated (HENRYWIN v3.10). This value indicates that 2-chlorobenzonitrile is moderately volatile from water.

From the calculated Koc of 162 (log Koc = 2.2) it can be concluded that 2-chlorobenzonitrile has only a low potential for adsorption to soil and sediments (PKOC v1.66).

Adsorption to aerosols is not expected. The adsorption of 2-chlorobenzonitrile to aerosol particles is less than 0.1

Distribution modeling using Mackay Level I (v.2.11, 1999) indicates that water (67 %) and air (32 %) are the main target compartments of 2-chlorobenzonitrile.
