  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: EC50; Species: Daphnia magna (Water Flea) age 24 hr; Conditions: freshwater, static, 18-20°C, pH 8.0-8.3, dissolved oxygen 8.1-9.7 mg/L; Concentration: 13200 ug/L for 24 hr (95% confidence interval: 12000-14500 ug/L); Effect: intoxicaiton, immobilization />99% purity formulation
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: 2-Nitrotoluene, present at 100 mg/L, reached 0.5% of its theoretical BOD in 2 weeks using an activated sludge inoculum at 30 mg/L in the Japanese Ministry of Industry and Trade (MITI) test that employs a mixed inoculum obtained from freshwater, soil, and sludge(1). Other evidence supports complete aerobic degradation of 10 mg/L 2-nitrotoluene within 2 weeks when incubated in adapted aerobic composite river sediment and sewage sludges(3). When nitrotoluene-adapted activated sludges were used as an inoculum, however, 2-nitrotoluene (200 mg/L) was almost completely degraded (i.e. 98% removal) within 5 days when incubated at 20°C(3). The screening studies using unadapted sludges gave similar results as the MITI test, and 2-nitrotoluene is confirmed to be non biodegradable according to the standard MITI test. Using a mixed culture isolated from a contaminated soil (near an ammunition plant), 2-nitrotoluene (at initial concentrations of 3.5 mg/L) degraded completely in 8 days in aerobic batch and continuous reactor tests(4).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

The BCF for 2-nitrotoluene has been measured to be 12.5-29.9 (at a concentration of 0.1 ppm) and 6.6-29.7 (at 0.01 ppm) in carp (Carprinus carpio)(1). An estimated BCF of 15 was calculated for 2-nitrotoluene(SRC), using a log Kow of 2.30(2) and a regression-derived equation(3). According to a classification scheme(4), these BCF values suggest the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(1), the Koc of 2-nitrotoluene can be estimated to be 370(SRC). According to a classification scheme(2), this estimated Koc value suggests that 2-nitrotoluene is expected to have moderate mobility in soil. Field monitoring at a munition factory site in Melbourne Australia found that 2-nitrotoluene migrated large distances in the subsurface soils(3); 2-nitrotoluene is reported to have low soil Kd sorption coefficients in a variety of soils types(3) indicating it will leach.

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
