Description of key information

No data are available for the effects of dimethyl terephthalate on sediment-dwelling organisms.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

This data point has been waived for dimethyl terephthalate on the grounds that exposure is not expected to occur and that DMT is readily biodegradable and has no strong tendency to partition toward organic matter in sediment. Under these circumstances, data for the effects of dimethyl terephthalate on sediment-dwelling organisms are considered unnecessary.
