Additional information

Tests on phototransformation in soil are not required to be performed under Annexes VII to X of REACH. No data available for phototransformation of chloroethylene in soil.

Volatilisation of chloroethylenefrom soil is expected to be significant based on its high vapour pressure.

The estimated half-life of chloroethylene in soil is approximately 30 days (720 hours) using EPI Suite software.
