Description:

The Environmental Fate Database contains more than 13,000 records of information on the environmental fate or behavior (i.e., transport and degradation) of approximately 800 chemical released into the environment. Chemicals selected for inclusion are produced in quantities exceeding 1 million pounds per year. Data, extracted from published literature, include environmental transformation rates (e.g., biodegradation, oxidation, hydrolysis) and physical and chemical properties (e.g., water solubility, vapor pressure). The database may contain multiple records, each representing an individual test or observation, for a given chemical. The main subject covered is fate or behavior of chemicals, which are released into the environment, including environmental transformation rates and physical-chemical properties.
