Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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 published experimental data on water solubility of dichloromethane report values in the range of 13 -20 g/L, where the most of the data correspond to a water solubility value of 13 g/L. The calculated with the US EPA developed QSAR models water solubility of dichloromethane provide slightly lower values for this endpoint.


Based on the water solubility data summarized above, the estimated value of 13 g/L is adopted for the purpose of this CSA. Therefore, dichloromethane is soluble in water with estimated value of 13 g/L at 25 deg. C.
