Description of key information

Additional information

Based on its physico-chemical properties such as high water solubility (99.8 g/L) and low potential for adsorption (log Koc: 1 - 1.47), the surface water is expected to be the main target for environmental distribution of 2-(1-methylethoxy)ethyl acetate (CAS 19234-20-9). Volatilization cannot be excluded based on the vapour pressure of 700 Pa. However, the substance will be rapidly photodegraded and it is therefore not likely to persist (DT50 < 24 h).
