Description of key information

2-methylpropane-2-thiol is not inhibitory to micro-organisms in a closed bottle ready biodegradation test at a concentration of 1 mg/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10, LC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
1 mg/L

Additional information

Gancet (2010) is a GLP-compliant, 63 day, static freshwater study following OECD guideline 301D - closed bottle ready biodegradability test. A reference flask showed that micro-organisms were not inhibited at a concentration of 1 mg/l. The ready biodegradability study has a reference flask to measure inhibition of micro-organisms and so is considered reliable and suitable for use.
