Description of key information

Hydrolysate of methyl chloroformate (Methanol, HCl, CO2): The inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when introduced in appropriately low concentrations.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The hydrolysate (3 -d hydrolysis) of methyl chloroformate was tested in a GLP study following OECD TG 209. The EC50 (30 min) was determined to be > 1000 mg/L, related to nominal concentrations of the parent compound (BASF AG, 1999).

Hydrolysis product methanol: In a respiration inhibition test with activated sludge following OECD TG 209, the 3 -h EC50 was determined to be > 1000 mg/L (Kleĉka et al., 1985).
