Additional information

Bemotrizinol appears to be persistent in both aquatic and terrestrial environments as no significant biodegradation was measured in either a biodegradation test with active sludge or a 120-day test in three different type of soils. Further testing showed that the substance adsorbs strongly to sediment and soil. When released in the environment, almost 100% will adsorb to sediment (or soil), whereas environmental concentrations in water or air will be insignificant.
