Description of key information

The study can be waived due to the low log Kow value for the compound.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Koc at 20 °C:
19

Additional information

Based on REACH guidance(Column 2 of Annex VIII), the study does not need to be conducted since the compound is expected to have a low potential for adsorption due to the its low log Kow value (0.162 at 22°C).

In addition, the estimated Koc for nitroethane ranged from 18 to 20 L/kg. This low value indicates that the test compound will have little tendency to adsorb to soil or sediment, consistent with the low log Kow value.
