Description of key information

After 28 days 97 % degradation in water was measured (DOC)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

According to a screening test on readily biodegradability performed in 1998 according to OECD 301E, the test substance in the test concentration of 100 mg/L reached the level of 10% (begin of the biodegradation) after 2 days. After 14 days a mean degradation rate of 97% and the plateau was reached. The pass level of a biodegradation > 70% was reached in a 10 [d]-window. Therefore, DMS could be regarded as readily biodegradable.
