Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as high water solubility (> 1000 g/L), low volatilization potential (vapour pressure: 0.0394 Pa; Henry’s Law constant: < 1 Pa m³/mole) and low potential for adsorption (log Koc: 0.53 - 1), the surface water is expected to be the main target for environmental distribution of 2,2'-[ethane-1,2-diylbis(oxy)]bisethyl diacetate (CAS 111-21-7). However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in this compartment.
