Dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate is released directly to the environment during its use as a pre-emergence herbicide for the control of annual grasses and some annual broad-leaved weeds. If released to the atmosphere, dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate will exist in both the vapor phase and the particulate phase based on an experimental vapor pressure of 2.5×10-6 mm Hg. In the vapor phase, it should react slowly with hydroxyl radicals with an estimated half-life of 36 days. Particulate phase dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate may be removed physically from air by wet and dry deposition. Dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate is expected to be essentially immobile in soil based on an estimated Koc of 5900; it may bind strongly to organic matter or clay in the soil. This compound will biodegrade with products of monomethyl tetrachloroterephthalate and tetrachloroterephthalic acid. Half-lives ranging from 11 to 289 days depending on the soil temperature and moisture conditions (optimal conditions, 20-30 deg C, 0.2 kg H2O/kg soil) have been reported. Volatilization of dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate from moist soil surfaces is also possible. During a 21 day period, 36-52% of the total measured dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate loss from soil was accounted for by volatilization and 26% by breakdown in soil. Photodegradation on soil surfaces may occur with a half-life of 5 hours (reaction products include monomethyl tetrachloroterephthalate, tetrachloroterephthalic acid, and 1,2,4,5-tetrachlorobenzene). In water, dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate should bind strongly to particulate matter and sediment in the water column based on an estimated Koc value of 5900. Biodegradation may occur based on evidence from several soil studies. Dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate should bioconcentrate in aquatic organisms based on an estimated BCF value of 1300; this compound has been detected in fish at several locations. Exposure to dimethyl tetrachloroterephthalate by the general population is through the ingestion of leafy and root vegetables and fish, the drinking of well water, and, in some agricultural areas, by the inhalation of air.
