1,1,1 -trichloroethane is not readily degraded by abiotic means (hydrolysis, photolysis) and is comparatively stable if it reaches groundwater ( usual route through unregulated waste disposal sites). Abiotic degradation can be considered a minor route of removal of releases of this material to the environment.
