Abstract : This review examines the rate constants for hydrolysis in water of 12 classes of organic compounds with the objectives of using these data to estimate the presistence of these compounds in freshwater aquatic systems. Primary data obtained by literature review through the most of 1975 and some of 1976. These data, which include values for acid, base, and water promoted rate constants (ka, kb, kn) and temperature coefficients are presented. Estimated rate constants for hydrolysis under environmental conditions are presented, including rate constants at 298 K and pH 7 for acid, base, and water promoted reactions together with values for the estimated rate constant (kn) and the half-life(t1/2).
