Additional information

Since 2-amino-2-(hydroxymethyl)-1,3-propanediol (trometamol) is well soluble in water, is not volatile, and has low adsorption potential, its main target compartment in the environment is likely to be water. Accumulation in organisms is unlikely, due to the low log Kow value. Trometamol is readily biodegradable and is therefore expected to be degraded by microorganisms in the environment within a short period of time. Since it will be eliminated by biodegradation, hydrolysis is not relevant for this substance.
