Additional information

Adsorption to the solid soil phase is not expected. From the water or moist soil surface methyl formate will slowy evaporate into the atmosphere due to a Henry's Law Constant of 22.6 Pa m³/mol at 25°C. Following the Mackay Level I calculations, methyl formate will preferentially distribute into air (98.1 %) (ECT, 2007).
