Description of key information

Since thiosulfates are inorganic substances, they are not subject to any form of biodegradation in soil.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Thiosulfate are inorganic substances, thus intrinsically not being susceptible to any form of biodegradation. However, thiosulfates are not stable in soil, and instead are rapidly converted to other sulfur substances (e. g., tetradithionates)
