Justifications and discussions

Category definition:
The Persulphate Category includes discrete chemicals sharing the same representative moiety, i.e. the persulphate anion.
Category order description:
NA
Category rationale:
The Persulphate Category includes discrete chemicals with similar chemical structures sharing the same representative moiety, i.e. the persulphate anion. The inorganic compounds differ only by the cationic part of the salt. All category members exhibit similar physico-chemical properties. The cationic part is not expected to influence the hazardous properties of the molecule. The anionic part is identical and, therefore, the salts are expected to display the same environmental, ecotoxicological and toxicological behaviour.
