Description of key information

Adsorption to solid soil phase is not expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Due to its calculated log Koc of 1.45 to 2.02 (Koc = 28 to 105; BASF SE, 2009), adsorption of 2 -ethylhexanoyl chloride to soil and sediment is not expected. However, 2 -ethylhexanoyl chloride is expected to hydrolyse rapidly and to form 2 -ethylhexanoic acid.

The hydrolysis product 2 -ethylhexanoic acid has a calculated log Koc of 1.91 (value refers to the charged molecule at pH 7; BASF SE, 2010). Therefore, adsorption to solid soil phase is not expected.
