Additional information

A test on ready biodegradability was conducted according to OECD Guideline 301 C (Ready Biodegradability: Modified MITI Test (I)). After 28 days tert-Butylamin, the hydrolysis product of tert-butyl isocyante, showed 0 % degradation. Therefore, tert-Butylamin, and thus tert-butyl isocyanate too, is not readily biodegradable (MITI, 2001).
