Description of key information

Additional information

The terrestrial toxicity studies are not proposed by the registrant because direct or indirect exposure of the terrestrial compartment is unlikely to occur based on the knowledge that the substance is a volatile gas at ambient conditions with a boiling point ranging from-26.2°C (The Beilstein database. Reference: Miller - 1951 ) to -26.8°C (The Beilstein database. Reference: Henne - 1948), in addition, in case of accidental emission, it is released only to air compartment as indicated from the EQC Fugacity III Model (v.2.02, The Canadian Centre for Environmental Modelling and Chemistry, May 2003): The EQC Fugacity III Model confirms that all the CTFE released to air remains in this compartment. The model was run assuming emission only to atmosphere. In case of an accidental emission, CTFE is only released to atmosphere, because CTFE is a volatile gas at ambient conditions with a boiling point ranging from -26.2°C to -26.8°C.
