Additional information

Based on the data available which is described in the following sections, the environmental fate and pathways of sodium hypophosphite can be summarized as follows:

As the test substance is very soluble in water and has a low potential for adsorption (Koc: 5 to 25 mL/g), its main target will be the water compartment where it can be persistent due to its hydrolytic stability (half-life higher than 1 year).
