Description of key information

The adsorbtion / desorbtion behaviour of 1-chloro-2-methylbenzene was determined with a method equaling the batch-equilibrium method yielding Koc values in the range of 170 - 880 (logKoc 2.23 - 2.94) (Banerjee 1985). With reference to Swann (1983) 1-chloro-2-methylbenzene has a minor to middle potential to sorb on soil or sediment and thus a less migration potential to ground water.
