According to PBT profiler 3-acetamido-5-amino-4-hydroxybenzenesulphonic acid is 50% biodegradable in water in 38 days (half-life). Also from QSAR prediction it is found that the substance is 69.9% degradable in 28 days. Since the half life is less than the threshold of 60 days (to qualify the chemical as persistent).
