TMBX is hydrolytically unstable and breaks down to form methanol and boric acid in the presence of water, these species can be expected to be found following release to the environment. Therefore, an assessment of ecotoxicological potential was conducted taking account of the effects of the hydrolysis breakdown products of TMBX upon the different trophic levels. Based on the data available both breakdown products are not condisered to be PBT or vPvB substance and therefore TMBX can be condsidered not to fullfil the PBT criteria.
