Description of key information

All references describe ethanol as completely miscible in water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
789 000 mg/L
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

All available references indicate that ethanol is fully soluble in water at relevant environmental temperatures. The key parameter adopted to indicate complete miscibility is therefore the same as the density. Water solubility is not expected to be sensitive to changes in pH or temperature (at least those likely to be encountered in under conceivable environmental conditions). The key parameter is based on the density - representative of 100% solubility.
