The light-induced decomposition of methoxychlor was studied in hexane, distilled water, and several natural water samples. Product studies indicate that the primary photochemical process for methoxychlor is the same as that for DDT--cleavage of one of its carbon-chlorine bonds to form free-radical intermediates. Subsequent reactions of these intermediates with themselves, oxygen, or the solvent determine the nature of products. Copyright (c) 1976 by the American Chemical Society.
