To evaluate the behavior of vinyl chloride in aquatic ecosystems, best estimate and worst case models of lake and stream ecosystems were analyzed through the use of mathematical simulation. The characteristics of the chemical, biological, and physical transformations of vinyl chloride indicated in the models were determined by laboratory experimentation and extrapolation of reaction data for similar compounds. These transformations included oxidation, substitution, elimination, hydrolysis, and free radical reactions; complexation; direct and indirect photochemical reactions; microbial degradation and toxicity; bacterial, algal, and fungal sorption; and volatilization. Loss of vinyl chloride from the aquatic environment by volatilization appeared to be the most significant process in its distribution.
