EC number: 255-449-7
CAS number: 41583-09-9
No data are
available. As the substance is a water soluble salt of phosphate,
effects can be read-across from the cation, which is likely to have the
more important effects.Inbiological
is an abundant in cells and body fluids.In
ecological terms, because of its important role in biological systems,
phosphate is a highly sought-after resource. Thus, read-across from
component CAS Reg.-No. 108-78-1, melamine, is justified.
Melamine is a stable molecule.
Melamine is hydrolyzed only by mineral acid or inorganic alkali.
Hydrolysis proceeds stepwise, with loss of one, two, or all three amino
groups, i.e. producing ammeline, ammelide and cyanuric acid.
Melamine is not readily or inherently biodegradable. Biodegradation,
also stepwise, to cyanuric acid and lastly to CO2 and NH4+ can occur in
waste water treatment plants with adapted microorganisms.
No bioaccumulation is expected, as the determined bioconcentration
factors in fish are <1 (only at 0.2 ppm the BCF = 3.8).
Based on the low n-octanol/water partition coefficient also the
adsorption to soil or sediment is expected to be low, i.e. in the range
of 1.1 to 1.5.
Some monitored data in the environment and wildlife are available from
surveys in Japan, performed in earlier years.
