Description of key information

In the environment, butyl carbamate is considered to primarily undergo degradation via microorganisms (biotic) as it was identified to be inherently biodegradable in an OECD 301 B study and resistant to hydrolysis (based on long half-lives) as per EPISuite. However, considering the low estimated Koc and BCF values, butyl carbamate is neither expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment nor bioconcentrate in aquatic organisms. Further, volatilization from water surfaces is not expected given its estimated Henry’s Law constant via EPISuite and relatively low vapour pressure. The following section outlines the underlying study details:
