Key study: estimated by calculation: Koc = 2.738. It is concluded that sodium trichloroacetate showed a low soil sorption, so it is concluded that sodium trichloroacetateshowed a low soil sorption, in particular to the predominately negatively charged soil colloids, because of its physicochemical properties (high water solubility, strong dissociation in aqueous solution).

Henry's Law constant:

Key study: estimated by calculation (EPI Suite v3.20, EPA). The estimated Henry's Law constant for sodium trichloroacetate is 24x10-9atm.m3/mole at 25 ºC.
