Adsorption / desorption

Adsorption of methyl formate and its hydrolysis products (methanol and formic acid) to the solid soil phase is not expected.

Henry's Law constant

From the water surface, methyl formate will slowly evaporate into the atmosphere. The hydrolysis products methanol and formic acid are not expected to significantly volatilize from the aquatic compartment.
