1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazoliumchloride is poorly biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The biodegradability of 1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazoliumchloride was investigated using municipal activated sludge in a screening test system according to OECD guideline 301A. After 28 days a DOC removal <10% was found.
