A search of the scientific literature and an evaluation of such literature on the environmental fate of the following compounds has been reported: benzidine and its salts; 3,3'-dichlorobenzidine; 1-naphthylamine; -propiolactone; 4,4'-methylenebis(2-chloroaniline); ethylenimine; and bis(chloromethyl)ether. Some intelligent guessing based on structural analogies for the chemicals is made where little information was available. These chemicals are known carcinogens but little is known of their environmental fate. Emphasis is placed on reporting or estimating kinetic values for potentially important pathways of degradation. In cases where no data were available, independent calculations for free radical reactivity were made.
