Additional information

Thioglycolic acid and its salts are highly soluble in water and have a low logP of -2.99 at 22 °C and pH 7. Therefore, the relevant thioglycolate anion is not expected to bioaccumulate according to technical guidance documents.

Based on its intrinsic chemical properties, it can be concluded that thioglycolic acid and its salts when released to the aquatic environment are not expected to represent a chronic hazard for aquatic species.
