Description of key information

In the atmosphere a half-life of 9.5 hours for MBT due to reaction with photochemically produced hydroxyl radicals is estimated by AOPWIN v1.92 with a rate constant of 4.06 *10-11cm3/(molecule*sec), considering an OH-concentration of 500,000 radicals/cm³ as a 24-h average (Currenta, 2010). The estimated half-life in air of MBT is much shorter than 48 hours and hence no potential for long-range transport of MBT in air is expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
