Taking into account the instability of sodiumdithionite under environmental conditions (decomposition/hydrolysis to sulfite and sulfate) and its physicochemial properties which make adsorption to soil unlikely, the derivation of a PNEC for the terrestrial compartment is not feasible/appropriate.
Taking into account the instability of sodiumdithionite under environmental conditions (decomposition to sulfite and sulfate) and its physicochemial properties which make adsorption to soil unlikely, the derivation of a PNEC for the terrestrial compartment is not feasible/appropriate:
- due to rapid oxidation of sodium dithionite, no relevant test design and toxicity data can be generated
- due to the lack of a relevant adsorption coefficient for dithionites to soil, the equilibrium partitioning method for deriving a PNECterrestrial is not applicable
- taking into account the industrial use, exposure pathways and environmental fate of sodium dithionite, long-term exposure of sediment organisms to this substance can be excluded.
Consequently, there is no need to derive a PNECterrestrial for sodium dithionite.
