Additional information

Volatilisation of furfural from surface waters is not expected to be rapid because Henry law’s constant for furfural has been calculated to be 0.2 Pa.m3/mol. This value has been calculated according to the TGD (1996) and is used in the calculations in the finalized European Risk Assessment Report under EU Regulation 793/93 (Date of report: February 2008). This has been taken over.
