Abstract
Simple properties of chemicals--the octanol--water partition coefficient (K sub (ow)), Henry's Law constant (H sub c) and biodegradability half-life (t(1/2) -- provide a means of evaluating ecotoxicologic testing requirements prior to direct screening using various organisms. Based on potential for exposure, arrays of properties portending ecotoxicologic concern are suggested for bioaccumulation and chronic effects, multispecies-Multimedia involvement, inhalation toxicology and abiotic atmospheric effects.
