Description of key information

No biodegradation of TMQ was observed during 28 days exposure in a closed bottle test according to EU method C.4-E (Bayer AG, 2000) and during 35 days exposure to adapted bacterial inoculum (Monsanto, 1979); and hence TMQ can be concluded as both not readily biodegradable and not inherently biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed
