Reactive Blue 250 has a very high water solubility. Screening tests for
biodegradation of the structural analogue Reactive Black 5 in water or
under environmental conditions showed that the test substance is not
readily biodegradable. However, it is rapidly hydrolysed with a
half-life of 1 to 2 days at pH 7. When Reactive Black 5 was applied to a
sediment/water test system at a final concentration of 1 mg/kg in the
test system, the test substance was rapidly degraded to Reactive Black 5
bis-vinyl and further to Reactive Black 5-OH. The DT50 of Reactive Black
5-ester was 2 days. After 3 to 6 days, only 10% of the applied Reactive
Black 5 could be found. All metabolites decreased at the end of the test
period to levels around the lower level of quantification. Consequently,
an accumulation of metabolites could be excluded. The majority of the
metabolites of Reactive Black 5 were deposited in form of
non-extractable residues in sediment during test phase. After about
1 month, mineralization of the metabolites started.
A bioaccumulation study in the carp revealed bioconcentration factors <
11 for 0.2 mg/L and < 1.1 for 2 mg/L. Hence, Reactive Black 5 either as
bis-ester, or as bis-vinyl does not bioaccumulate in the aquatic
compartment. Based on data from kinetic and metabolism studies in rats
(oral and intravenous administration), the test item Reactive Black 5 as
well as its structural analogue Reactive Blue 250 does not have any
bioaccumulation potential in animals. Due to the very low toxicity,
rapid degradation and lack of bioaccumulative properties, secondary
poisoning can be excluded for both items.
