Dodemorph is a morpholine fungicide which is currently approved for use in both the UK and the EU. It is moderately soluble in water and most organic solvents. It is moderately persistent in soil and is non-mobile. Based on its physico-chemical parameters, dodemorph is not expected to leach to groundwater. It demonstrates a low toxicity to mammals but a moderate level of toxicity to bees, fish and aquatic invertebrates. Limited data is available on its toxicity to humans but some reports suggest it is a possible reproduction/developmental toxin as well as an irritant.
The following alerts are based on the data in the tables below. An absence of an alert does not imply the substance has no implications for human health, biodiversity or the environment but just that we do not have the data to form a judgement.

Estimated concentrations of chemicals with Koc values greater than 9995 ml g⁻¹ are beyond the scope of the regression data used in SCI-GROW development. If there are concerns for such chemicals, a higher tier groundwater exposure assessment should be considered, regardless of the concentration returned by SCI-GROW
