Description of key information

Sodium chlorate is highly soluble in water (95.7 g/100 ml at 20°C). Sodium chlorate in aqueous solutions is known for its chemical stability under environmental conditions. Based on the chemical structure it is expected that sodium chlorate is resistant to hydrolysis and is not photodegradable.Reduction of chlorate has been detected in terrestrial ecosystems, fresh water, marine environment, compost, and aquifers. These findings demonstrate the wide distribution of chlorate-reducing micro-organisms
