Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 the log Pow of 1.43 a low bioaccumulation potential of chloroethane (CAS 75-00-3) is anticipated. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Experimental data investigating the bioaccumulation potential of chloroethane (CAS 75-00-3) are not available. The substance is characterised by a log Pow of 1.43 indicating a low potential to accumulate in biota. Based on the log Pow of the substance a BCF of 4.08 L/Kg was estimated using the BCFBAF v3.01 program (Estimation Programs Interface Suite™ for Microsoft® Windows v 4.10., US EPA). Assuming biotransformation a BCF/BAF value of 3.43 L/Kg was estimated (BCFBAF v3.01, Arnot-Gobas, including biotransformation, upper trophic).

Thus, bioaccumulation of the substance is considered unlikely.
