Additional information

Benzyldimethylamine was shown to be not ready biodegradable in different ready biodegradability tests using non-adapted sludge (MITI, 1992). With an adapted sludge the substance was 100% ready biodegradable (Bayer AG, 1979). In addition, Benzyldimethylamine was shown to be 100% inherently biodegradable after 13 days and fulfilled the criterion for inherent, ultimative biodegradability (BASF, 1987).
