Description of key information

Methylenbis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) is not toxic to waste water (activated sludge) bacteria at or below a loading rate of 1000 mg/L (NOEC). The EC50 exceeded a loading rate of 1000 mg/L (WIL Research Europe, 2013).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
1 000 mg/L

Additional information

In an OECD 209 study, conducted to GLP, methylenbis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) was not toxic to waste water (activated sludge) bacteria at or below a loading rate of 1000 mg/L (NOEC). The EC50 exceeded a loading rate of 1000 mg/L (WIL Research Europe, 2013).
