Summary: 1,3-Dichloropropene is an organochlorine used as a pesticide. Its primary use is in soil fumigants. It exists as a colorless liquid at room temperature and has a density of 1.220 g/mL at 25 C. It is soluble in water up to 2,000 mg/L at 20 C. It has a characteristic odor similar to that of chloroform. Upon decomposition will produce gaseous hydrogen chloride and oxides of carbon. It is classified by the EPA as a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAPs). The compound exists as a vapor in the atmosphere and is degraded by ozone with a half-life of 17 days. It will have high mobility within soil based on its Koc value ranging from 20-42. Biodegradation within soil may produce 3-chloroallyl alcohol. Volatilization from soil and water is expected to be a major degradation process. The compound has been measured in rain water.
