Degradability was not calculated because the test substance was
insoluble in water.
Because the test substance concentration in the bottle 6 was less than
90% of the theoretical value, disappearance rate was shown instead of
Disappearance rate in bottles 3 -6:
MTF is considered not to be readily biodegradable.
A biodegradation study (Yokohama Laboratory, Mitsubishi Chemical Safety
Institute Ltd. (M.S.I.), 1996) was conducted to assess the ready
biodegradability of MTF in water. The study was conducted according to
official test methods (Test Method Relating to New Chemical Substances,
Kanpogyo No. 5, Yakuhatsu No. 615, 49 Kikyoku No. 392, 1974) and in
compliance with GLP.
On the basis of oxygen consumption, the test material was found not to
have degraded over the 28 -day monitoring period.
On this basis, MTF is considered not to be readily biodegradable. It was
noted that residual test material concentrations in media had decreased
over the monitoring period, however this was considered to have been due
