EC number: 203-710-0
CAS number: 109-83-1
One valid experimental key result is
available regarding biodegradation in fresh water for
N-methylethanolamine (according to OECD 301A, BASF, 1993). After 21
days, 92 -93 % degradation were achieved. The 10 -day window was kept.
The test substance is readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
In addition, several supporting results are
The japanese biodegradation screening study
(Japan Chemical Industry Ecology - Toxicology & Information Center;
JETOC, 1992) was conducted according to OECD 301C. A mixed inoculum was
used. After 28 days, degradation of 97 % (based on TOC removal) or 68 %
(based on oxygen consumption) was achieved, respectively.
Biodegradation of N-methylaminoethanol
(MMEA, CAS 109-83 -1) and further 42 amine compounds was determined in
the supporting study: a marine biodegradability test by Eide-Haugmo et
al. (2012), conducted according to the OECD guideline 306,
“Biodegradability in seawater” (OECD, 1992). As test medium for the
biodegradation test, aged and fortified seawater was used. After an
incubation period of 28 days degradation rate of MMEA was 94 % (BOD28,
based on % of ThOD).
2 -Methylaminoethanol is readily
biodegradable according to OECD criteria (BASF AG, 1993; MITI Japan,
1992, Eide-Haugmo, 2012).
