A procedure has been developed to predict the products from reaction of compounds in the atmosphere. The procedure is designed to be used in unreasonable-risk evaluations that include assessing new chemials for persistence and exposure in the environment. In this procedure, the relative importance of the three dominant reaction pathways--photolysis, reaction with OH radical, and reaction with ozone--are first determined for each compound. Then the products from each pathway that play a major role for that compound are estimated using the techniques outlined in the methods. The methods are applicable to a wide variety of compounds; however, as the structure of the compounds differ from the structures on which the procedures were based, the conclusions become tentative. It is belived, however, that this will be a minor fraction of the cases to which it is applied.
