DEGRADATION & PERSISTENCE:


Based on information for chlorpyrifos.
The photolysis half-life in water is 3-4 weeks.
Tropospheric half-life is estimated to be 1.4 hours.
Degradation is expected in the soil environment within days

Under aerobic soil conditions the half-life is generally 30-60
days.
Based on information for components of Aromatic 100.
Biodegradation under aerobic static laboratory conditions is
high (BOD20 or BOD28/ThOD >40%).
