Additional information

The physico-chemical properties of chloroethane (CAS 75-00-3) such as a high volatilization potential (VP 134200 Pa at 20°C) and a low log Koc (1.24) indicate that the substance will be mainly present in air when released to the environment. Adsorption to soil and suspended matter is considered not relevant for the substance.
