Description of key information

Half life period of chlorocresol in Soil was observed to be 75 days which does noy exceeds the threshhold of >120 days. Based on these half life values it is concluded that chlorocresol is readily biodegradable (not persistent) in Soil

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in soil:
75 d
at the temperature of:
25 °C
