Description of key information

In an aqueous photolysis screening test the half-life of MBS was observed to be 0.78 hour (Monsanto 1980).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The values mentioned above refer to the top millimetres of a water body in summer, because of factors like cloudiness, shadowing effects of vegetation, absorption and scattering of light by suspended solids etc., the actual environmental lifetime is certainly longer.
