Description of key information

The substance diiodohydroxyquinoline is 50% biodegradable in soil in 75 days (half-life). This value indicates that diiodohydroxyquinoline is not readily biodegradable in soil since the half life is more than the threshold criteria of >= 60 days (to qualify the chemical as persistent).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in soil:
75 d

Additional information

The substance diiodohydroxyquinoline is 50% biodegradable in soil in 75 days (half-life). This value indicates that diiodohydroxyquinoline is not readily biodegradable in soil since the half life is more than the threshold criteria of >= 60 days (to qualify the chemical as persistent).

Hence, it can be concluded that the substance diiodohydroxyquinoline is persistent in soil.
