Description of key information

bis(dibutyldithiocarbamato-S,S')copper (CDBC) is not readily biodegradable. It is highly sorbtive and degrades rapidly in the sediment compartment. Although mineralization is somewhat slow, its degradation products are not considered persistent in the environment. Hydrolysis is not expected to occur. However, as a complexing agent, DBC stability in water and sediment may be affected by other potential ligands.
