1,1-Dichloroethane

CAS RN:75-34-3

Soil Adsorption / Mobility

The measured Koc of 1,1-dichloroethane in soil has been reported to be 30(1,2). Sorption studies using sea sediment taken from the Belgian Continental Shelf of the North Sea in October 1993 determined a Koc of 9.2(3). According to a classification scheme(4), these Koc values suggest that 1,1-dichloroethane is expected to have very high mobility in soil. 1,1-Dichloroethane was readily leached from material representative of waste at land disposal sites(5) and was found in leachate from a simulated landfill lysimeter used to study the codisposal of metal plating sludge and municipal waste(6).
