Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

The Screening test for biodegradation in water here reported showed that 1,2-dichloropropane is not inherently biodegradable as only 11.7% of degradation was observed after 28 days. No simulation was deemed to be performed as 1,2-dichloropropane is not expected to segregate in the water and sediment compartments due to its attitude to volatise in the atmospheric compartment. The substance shows a low adsorptive (log Koc = 1.67) as well as a low bioaccumulative potential (log Kow = 1.99- 2.28, BCF = 0.5 -7) .

Hence, a relevant distribution into soil and a significant exposure of terrestrial arthropods is not expected. Furthermore 1,2-dichloropropane is expected to be primarily in air with a very low distribution in soil.
