Roles Classification
Chemical Role(s): persistent organic pollutant
Any environmental contaminant that is resistant to environmental degradation through photolytic, biological or chemical processes. Such substances can have significant impact on health and the environment, as they persist in the environment, bioaccumulate in animal tissue and so biomagnify in food chains.
Biological Role(s): carcinogenic agent
A role played by a chemical compound which is known to induce a process of carcinogenesis by corrupting normal cellular pathways, leading to the acquistion of tumoral capabilities.
antifungal agrochemical
Any substance used in acriculture, horticulture, forestry, etc. for its fungicidal properties.
fungicide
A substance used to destroy fungal pests.
(via aromatic fungicide )
Application(s): antifungal agrochemical
