Environmental modeling (Mckay model) show that, if 1,1,2-trichloroethane is released into air, it is unlikely to be distributed into any other compartments. If 1,1,2-trichloroethane is released into water or soil, it is likely to be transported to air for some part (UNEP, 2000, Fugacity, EPI suite 2008) .

A soil-water partition coefficient study (Kommalapati et al., 2001) showed that constant release of substance from water phase is still observed following several desorption steps. KOCWIN (EPI suite, EPA 2009) estimated the Koc to be between 43.64 and 60.7.
