Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The log Kow value (0.162) indicates that nitromethane has a very low potential to bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

 The bioaccumulation of nitroethane was assessed in screening tests in fish and algal, which both have deficiencies in reporting of key information for the interpretation of the results. The fish study may be considered as a screen assessment since the exposure duration is too short to account for uptake and depuration. Based on the phy-chem properties (log Kow=0.162), the substance has a very low potential for bioaccumulation.
