Hydrogen peroxide

CAS RN: 7722-84-1

Environmental Fate

TERRESTRIAL FATE: Hydrogen peroxide is unstable and breaks down rapidly to oxygen and water(1). Therefore, adsorption to soil, volatilization and biodegradation are not important environmental fate processes in soil(SRC).
AQUATIC FATE: Hydrogen peroxide is unstable and breaks down rapidly to oxygen and water(1). Therefore, adsorption to suspended solids and sediment, volatilization, biodegradation and bioconcentration are not important environmental fate processes in water(SRC).
ATMOSPHERIC FATE: Hydrogen peroxide is unstable and breaks down rapidly to oxygen and water. It is expected to be broken down by sunlight(1).
