Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Studies carried out on secondary effluents demonstrate that chlorine dioxide has a half-life from seconds to minutes under laboratory conditions. As degradation is abiotic (in contact with organic matter and oxidisable material), a guideline simulation test is inappropriate.
