Description of key information

Based on calculated log Koc values adsorption of ethylene oxide to the solid soil phase is not expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In a calculation using the MCI model of SRC KOCWIN v 2.0 (BASF SE, 2012) the log Koc of ethylene oxide was determined to be 0.51. The log Kow method of the same tool resulted in a log Koc of 0.67. Hence, adsorption to the solid soil phase is not expected.
