Description of key information

Additional information

There are no tests on transport and distribution of carbon monoxide available. The physico-chemical properties show, that air will be the preferred compartment for environmental distribution, independent from the way of entering the environment. Therefore, adsorption testing is scientifically unjustified for carbon monoxide. A calculated Henry´s Law constant by Yaws et al. 1999, markedly supports the predicted distribution into air (HLC = 115561 Pa m3 /mol, 25°C).
