Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as high water solubility (200 g/L), low volatilization potential from the water phase (Henry's Law Constant < 1 Pa m³/mole) and low potential for adsorption (log Koc: 0.046 - 0.41), the surface water is expected to be the main target for environmental distribution of ethylene diformate (CAS 629-15-2). However, due to its ready biodegradability and potential to undergo rapid hydrolysis, the substance will not persist in this compartment.
