Description of key information

Additional information

Chloroethane is highly volatile and thus a major partition to water, soil and sediment is not anticipated. Biodegradation in these environmental compartments is not assumed to be a relevant environmental pathway of the substance. The available data on biodegradation indicate that chloroethane is not readily biodegradable.
