No data are available on the toxicity of dimethyl terephthalate to soil microorganisms.
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. Under these circumstances, data for
the effects of dimethyl terephthalate on soil microorganisms are
Moreover, tests of the effects on activated
sludge (Point 6.1.7; Voelskow, 1989), which typically has a microbial
profile more closely resembling that of soil than sewage, and
Pseudomonas putida (Point 6.1.7; Anonymous, 1993c), a bacterium
ubiquitously present in aerobic compartments of the environment
including soil, indicate that exposure to DMT is unlikely to result in
adverse impact on microbial activity in soil. Soil microorganisms may be
expected to degrade DMT rapidly under aerobic and anaerobic conditions.
