Additional information

In accordance with Section 1 of REACH Annex XI, the conductance of the study on water solubility of zinc bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) is scientifically unjustified, as data are available on its structural analogue zinc bis(diethyldithiocarbamate), indicating that the substance is practically insoluble in water (water solubility 1.06 mg/L at 20˚C and pH 5.9 -6.4). As zinc bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) has a significantly higher molecular weight and a bulkier organic substituents in dithiocarbamate moieties (butyl vs. ethyl), it is very likely that its water solubility shall be even lower and will be below the limit of 1 mg/L.
