No data are avaialble on the toxicity of dimethyl terephthalate to other above-ground organisms.
data point has been waived for dimethyl terephthalate on the grounds
that contamination of the terrestrial compartment is unlikely, that DMT
is readily biodegradable and that primary exposure of terrestrial
vertebrates is therefore not expected to occur. Moreover, the log Kow of
dimethyl terephthalate is less than 3.0, indicating that its
bioconcentration potential is negligible and there is consequently no
significant risk of secondary poisoning of other above-ground organisms
via earthworms or fish. Studies on mammals have been provided in Chapter
5 of this document. DMT is not acutely toxic, is not an irritant and is
not mutagenic, carcinogenic or a reproductive toxin. DMT is also of low
toxicity following repeated dosing over study periods of up to two
years. Under these circumstances, data for the effects of dimethyl
terephthalate on other above-ground organisms are considered unnecessary.
