Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Additional information

Tests on phototransformation in water are not required to be performed under Annexes VII to X of REACH. Moreover, no data available for phototransformation of chloroethylenein water.

Taking into account high volatility of chloroethylene(half life of volatilization from water estimated as 49.4 minutes (for a river) to 3.14 days (for a lake) using EPI Suite software), the most dominant environmental fate process will be photooxidation ofchloroethylenein the atmosphere.


The estimated half-life ofchloroethylenein water is approximately 15 days (360 hours) using EPI Suite software.
