Abstract Information is presented for assessing the potential of an organic chemical to undergo abiotic transformation in aquatic ecosystems. When predicting the environmental fate of an organic chemical, two primary questions must be addressed. In attempting to address these questions, the types of functional groups that are susceptible to abiotic transformations (i.e., hydrolysis and redox reactions) and detailed reaction mechanisms for their transformation will be presented. These elementary reaction mechanisms are used as a framework for discussing factors that affect reaction rates and product distributions.
