Zinc bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) is characterised as “not readily biodegradable”.
A GLP-compliant OECD 301F (Manometric
Respirometry Test) is available for zinc bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate).
After 28 days 2% degradation was observed (Currenta GmbH & Co. OHG,
Therefore, in the assessment zinc
bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) is characterised as “not readily
In view of the overall low, but
steadily increasing degradation rate it is hypothesized that the
categorisation of zinc bis(dibutyldithiocarbamate) as “not readily
biodegradable” is partly due to slow solution kinetics of this poorly
soluble substance. This statement starts from the assumption that the
dissolved part of organic substances is generally regarded to be
available for biodegradation more easily than undissolved test item
