glycol methyl ether does not have PBT or vPvB Properties.
glycol methyl ether (DPGME) meets the criteria for ready biodegradation
passing the 10 day window in an OECD 301F. Degradation based on oxygen
consumption reached 75% after 10 days, while 79% degradation after 28
days. The formation of CO2 reached 76% CO2 indicating extensive
mineralisation of dipropylene glycol methyl ether. The test substance
does not fulfill the criteria for persistency as outlined in Annex XIII
of the REACH legislation of December 2006.
glycol methyl ether has a low log Kow (log Kow < 1) and is readily
biodegradable, which indicates that dipropylene glycol methyl ether
offers little potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms.
Therefore it does not fulfill the criteria for bioaccumulation as
outlined in Annex XIII of REACH legislation of December 2006.
toxicity data indicate that dipropylene glycol methyl ether presents a
low toxicity hazard to aquatic species. All EC50/LC50 values (fish,
daphnia and algae) are >
