No test on soil microorganisms is available for dipropylene glycol methyl ether.
methyl ether is highly water soluble (completely miscible) and has a
very low potential for adsorption to organic matter. Therefore, the
predicted no effect concentration (PNEC) for soil was derived from the
PNEC for freshwater using the equilibrium partitioning method. This
method is applicable for substances where the toxicity in soils relates
to the freely dissolved concentration in pore water. Dipropylene glycol
methyl ether is not classified as dangerous for the environment.
Dipropylene glycol methyl ether is readily biodegradable and has very
low potential for bioaccumulation (log Kow <1). The EC 50s/LC50s - based
on acute toxicity data in fish, Daphnia and algae - are higher than 1000
mg/l. Hence, testing of effects on terrestrial organisms can be waived
for dipropylene glycol methyl ether.
