Acetyl Chloride

CAS RN: 75-36-5

Soil Adsorption / Mobility

Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc for acetyl chloride can be estimated to be 2(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that acetyl chloride is expected to have very high mobility in soil. However, in view of its violent decomposition in the presence of water(3) and the high reactivity of this compound towards molecules with active hydrogen groups such as natural products containing amine, phenol, and alcohol functional groups that occur in soil(4), it is unlikely that acetyl chloride would persist for long in moist soils(SRC).
