Summary: Propanil is an anilide compound used an herbicide. It has a solubility in water of 152 mg/L at 25 C and a density of 1.25 g/mL at 25 C. Upon decomposition produces toxic fumes of nitrogen oxides and hydrogen chloride gas. Koc values in the range of 141-800 predict a high to moderate mobility within soil, and biodegradation may play a big role in removal.
