In 2009, India's Chandrayaan-1 satellite, NASA's Cassini spacecraft and the Deep Impact probe have each detected the presence of water by evidence of hydroxyl fragments on the Moon. As reported by Richard Kerr, "A spectrometer [the Moon Mineralogy Mapper, . "M3"] detected an infrared absorption at a wavelength of micrometers that only water or hydroxyl—a hydrogen and an oxygen bound together—could have created."  NASA also reported in 2009 that the LCROSS probe revealed an ultraviolet emission spectrum consistent with hydroxyl presence.  The Venus Express orbiter sent back Venus science data from April 2006 until December 2014. Results from Venus Express include the detection of hydroxyl in the atmosphere.
Animals In all species examined, prochloraz is rapidly metabolised initially by cleavage of the imidazole ring and quantitatively eliminated from the body, following oral administration. Whilst absorption following dermal exposure is low, residues in plasma and tissues are again rapidly eliminated from the body. Plants The primary plant metabolite, N-formyl-N'-1-propyl-N-(2-(2,4,6-trichlorophenoxy)ethyl)urea, is formed from cleavage of the imidazole ring. This is degraded to N-propyl-N-(2-(2,4,6-trichlorophenoxy)ethyl)urea, which occurs in both free and conjugated forms. Other metabolites include 2-(2,4,6-trichlorophenoxy)ethanol, 2-(2,4,6-trichlorophenoxy)acetic acid, traces of 2,4,6-trichlorophenol and conjugates of the above. Little unchanged prochloraz is present. Soil/Environment Degrades in the soil to a range of mainly volatile metabolites (degradation is not pH-dependent). Prochloraz is well adsorbed onto soil particles, and is not readily leached; Kd 152 (sandy loam), 256 (silty clay loam). In a further study, mean Koc 1463. Possesses low toxicity to a wide range of soil microflora and microfauna, but has inhibitory effects on soil fungi. DT50 under field conditions is 5-37 d.
