Based on the available experimental data, 2-methylimidazole (CAS 693-98-1) is assessed to be readily biodegradable (see IUCLID Ch. 5.2.1). Therefore, the substance does not fullfil the P/vP criteria. The substance is not B/vB based on a measured log Kow of 0.22 at 20 °C (rep. no.: 103652/01, BASF AG, 1989). The substance is classified as carcinogenic (Carc. 2) and toxic for reproduction (Repro 1B) and, therefore, due to toxic effects on reproduction of mammals it fulfills the T criteria.

In conclusion, the substance is not to be considered as a PBT/vPvB substance.
