The information regarding biodegradability of CS2 in surface water and
sediment was waived, since the test substance is readily biodegradable.
CS2 does not have any affinity for sediments or soil. Its log
Koc << 3 and its Kow < 3 (see section 4.7 in this IUCLID5 file). Direct
emission to soil or sediment do not occur. Furthermore the half life of
CS2 due to evaporation from surface waters and soil is very short (in
the order of hours), and it is a readily biodegradable substance (see
study by Ginkel, 1992 summarised under 5.2.1 Biodegradation in water).
Therefore, according to the guidelines R.7.B Endpoint specific guidance,
sediment simulation testing is not necessary.
