Description of key information

Additional information

Based on the available information Benzotriazole has to be assumed as hydrolytically stable (DT50 365 days under environmental conditions). Benzotriazole has potential to be photolytically degraded in the atmosphere and in aqueous solutions. As no further abiotic degradation process has been identified the latter should be considered as major pathway for abiotic degradation in the environment.
