Diethyl Ether

CAS RN:60-29-7

Soil Adsorption / Mobility

The Koc of diethyl ether is estimated as approximately 73(SRC), using a log Kow of 0.89(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that diethyl ether is expected to have high mobility in soil(SRC). A vapor-phase partition coefficient of 15.49 was measured for diethyl ether at 30 deg C in the silt and clay size fraction of a calcareous soil (1.2% organic carbon w/w) from Southern Nevada at 52% relative humidity(4).
