Description of key information

The substance 3,5-diiodosalicylic acid  is  readily biodegradable in nature and hence is not  persistent in water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

 The substance 3,5-diiodosalicylic acid is 50% biodegradable in water in 38 days (half-life). This value indicates that 3,5-diiodosalicylic acid is readily biodegradable in water since the half life is less than the EPA criteria of >= 60 days (to qualify the chemical as persistent). Hence the substance 2, 2, 2-trichloro-1-phenylethyl acetate is not persistent in water.
