Description of key information

Additional information

- Stability: Information on the hydrolysis of zinc bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) is waived due to the high insolubility of the substance in water. No tests are available for photodegradation in air, water or soil.

- Biodegradation: Zinc bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) is not readily biodegradable under aerobic conditions. The simulation tests of biodegradation of the substance in water, sediment and soil are waived.

- Bioaccumulation: The study is waived based on the log Kow = 2.16 (< 3). The substance is unlikely to be bioaccumulative.

- Adsorption/desorption: The calculated Koc value is 1.8E+06 L/kg (QSAR). A maximum Koc value of 1.0E+06 L/kg is used in the assessment.
