Comment on "Modelling Physico-Chemical Properties of (Benzo)triazoles, and Screening for Environmental Partitioning [bhhatarai and Gramatica, Water Res. 45, 2011, 1463-1471]"

Authors: Sierra Rayne

In their article, Bhhatarai and Gramatica [Water Res. 45, 2011, 1463-1471] employ a quantitative structure-property relationship approach to model the physico-chemical properties of compounds they refer to as benzotriazoles, and to subsequently screen these compounds for environmental partitioning behavior. A substantial number of these compounds are not benzotriazoles and do not have similar properties as benzotriazoles. Consequently, it appears that the approach, assumptions, and results in this work must be viewed as potentially fundamentally flawed.
