Urethane

IUPAC Name: Ethyl carbamate

Source: Used in the production of cosmetics, resins, and pesticides.

Summary: Urethane is commonly used in the production of resins, pesticides, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals. It is soluble in water up to 480,000 mg/L at 15 C and has a density of 0.9813 g/mL. It is classified by the EPA as a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAPs). A Koc value of 20 predicts very high mobility within soil. Biodegradtation is expected to be a major fate process but is dependent on initial concentrations.
