Description of key information

The half life(50% degradation) of 4,4'-bis(dimethylamino)-4''-(methylamino)trityl alcohol in soil is 360 days. It is estimated that the substance is expected to be found predominantly in soil and its persistence estimate is based on its transformation in this medium. Its half-life in soil, 360 days, exceeds the EPA criteria of >6 months. Therefore, the substance is estimated to be persistent and hence not biodegradable in soil.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in soil:
360 d
at the temperature of:
25 °C
