Description of key information

Methylene bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) attained 21% degradation after 28 days and therefore cannot be considered to be readily biodegradable (Safepharm Laboratories Limited, 2004).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

Key study:

In an OECD TG 301B study, conducted to GLP, methylene bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) attained 21% degradation after 28 days and therefore cannot be considered to be readily biodegradable (Safepharm Laboratories Limited, 2004).
