Description of key information

The surface tension of 1,1,1 -trichloroethane is 25.4 dynes/cm at 20°C (Seybold 1986)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Surface tension:
25.4

Additional information

The surface tension of 1,1,1 -trichloroethane is 25.4 dynes/cm at 20°C (Seybold 1986) and therefore it is considered that the substance has surface active properties. Although this is only a secondary reference and is not considered reliable (K4), no additional test is required because this is not a desired property of the substance.
