Additional information

Terrestrial toxicity testing in soil macro-organisms, soil arthropods, terrestrial plants and soil micro-organisms was not conducted.  Although the substance exhibits a high potential to adsorb to soil (the experimentally-determined adsorption coefficient (Koc) ranged from 60,000 L/kg to > 832,000 L/kg in tests on five soil types), the substance has been shown to degrade rapidly in soil and other environmental compartments.  When soil toxicity was evaluated on the basis of aquatic toxicity values and equilibrium partitioning, the risk characterization ratios for soil were below one, thus showing that exposures of organisms in the terrestrial compartment do not require further evaluation.
