Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Chlorine has strong oxidising properties and is therefore only soluble in organic solvents that could not be further oxidised or are completely chlorinated. Data for selected solvents were given (polar and non-polar solvents) and the influence of temperature on the solubility of chlorine is given. Accuracy is not always defined, but data are thought to be reliable at +/-3 %.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
