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

AEROBIC: By analogy to chemically similar long chain fatty acid esters that were rapidly degraded by in mixed sewage sludge(1-3), methyl myristate is expected to rapidly biodegrade under aerobic conditions(SRC).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 1100 was calculated for methyl myristate(SRC) using a log Kow of 6.41(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), the estimated BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is high. However, bioconcentration studies on compounds which are structurally similar(4,5) suggests that bioconcentration may be lower than that indicated by the regression-derived equation due to the ability of aquatic organisms to readily metabolize this class of compounds(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc for methyl myristate can be estimated to be about 5400(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that methyl myristate is expected to be immobile in soil.

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.

Contaminated packaging

Containers can be triply rinsed (or equivalent) and offered for recycling or reconditioning. Alternatively, the packaging can be punctured to make it unusable for other purposes and then be disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing is possible for combustible packaging materials.
