Tetrachlorodibenzodioxin: rates of volatilization and photolysis in the environment



Tetrachlorodibenzodioxin: rates of volatilization and photolysis in the environment



Environmental Science and Technology 20(5): 490-492



The vapor pressure of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxin (TCDD) at 25.degree. C is (7.4 .+-. 0.4) .times. 10-10 torr. This value together with published values of aqueous solubility, octanol/water partition coefficient, and photolysis quantum yields provides a basis for estimating the half-lives for movement and transformation of TCDD in water, air, and soil.
