Summary: Endosulfan is a synthetically produced compound used as a pesticide. It has a very low solubility in water at 0.53 mg/L at 25 C and a density of 1.745 g/mL at 20 C. Upon decomposition it produces gaseous sulfoxides and hydrogen chloride. A Koc value ranging from 350 – 19,953 indicates very low or zero mobility within soil. Hydrolysis and biodegradation are expected to be the major methods of natural removal from water sources. It is currently banned worldwide for use as a pesticide.
