12.Ecological information

12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: no data available
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: no data available
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

No biodegradation data for 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine were found(SRC). Structurally similar compounds such as 3,3'-dimethylbenzidine have been shown to undergo biodegradation slowly in screening tests(1), suggesting that 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine is also resistant to biodegradation(SRC).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 290 was calculated for 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine(SRC), using an estimated log Kow of 4.11(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is high(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

The Koc of 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine is estimated as 4,000(SRC), using an estimated log Kow of 4.11(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine is expected to have slight mobility in soil(SRC). The first pKa of 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine is estimated as 4.2, using an estimation method based on perturbed molecular orbital theory and linear free energy (LFER) methods(4). This estimated pKa indicates that 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine will partially exist in the protonated form under acidic conditions and cations have greater adsorption to soils than neutral molecules(SRC). Furthermore, 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine is an aromatic amine which may form covalent bonds with humic materials resulting in relatively immobile quinone-like complexes(5).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods

Product

The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.
