Description of key information

Both sodium and potassium chlorate almost totally dissociate in water, producing sodium/potassium cations and chlorate anions. The conclusions drawn for sodium chlorate are also valid for potassium chlorate.

The high tendency of sodium chlorate to ionise and the very low log Kow(< -2.9) suggest that no significant bioaccumulation would occur.

No measured bioaccumulation data are available.
