Description of key information

Physicochemical processes like phototransformation and hydrolysis are not relevant for the black pigment due to the lack of fluorophoric groups and non-measurable water solubility (at all pH-values). Lead is present as lanarkite predominately. Formation of different Pb-hydroxides may occur, but the chemical assessment cannot make any differentiation among the different Pb-species (pooling of different speciation forms). In addition, magnetite (Fe3O4) is virtually insoluble in the environment at the prevailing pH-domain.

 

Consequently, (abiotic) degradation is an irrelevant process for the black pigment.
