Description of key information

Additional information

Sodium, ammonium and potassium thiocyanate are salts that readily dissolve in water, and completely dissociate into their separate ions at all pH values (1 -14), and thus will have no tendency to hydrolyze. Degradation of the thiocyanates through hydrolysis is therefore not considered.

Direct photolysis of the three thiocyanates in air/water/soil will not occur, because they do not not absorb UV radiation above 290 nm. Photo transformation in air/water/soil is therefore assumed to be negligible.
