  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: LC50 Water flea (Daphnia magna) 6200 mg/L/48 hr (nominal concentration); static, freshwater.
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: 5,5-Dimethylhydantoin, present at 25 ppm 14-C, was 94% degraded in 19 days using an activated sludge inoculum acclimated for 14 days, incubated in fermenters, corresponding to a half-life of 5 days(1). The compound was 100% degraded when added to a 24-hr SCAS system acclimated for 16 days, in accordance with OECD test method 302A; from test day 18 through test day 42, the average daily removal was noted at >95%, corresponding to a half-life of 6 days(1). However, the compound was not readily biodegraded when subjected to a standard DOC test (TSCA guideline 40CFR796.3240) using a sewage inoculum and test compound concentration of 20 mg C/L; percent degradation was 7.3, 4.5, 10.1, and 9.5 on day 7, 14, 21, 27,and 28, respectively, corresponding to a half-life of 194 days(1).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 3 was calculated in fish for 5,5-dimethylhydantoin(SRC), using a log Kow of -0.48(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

The Koc of 5,5-dimethylhydantoin is estimated as 13(SRC), using a log Kow of -0.48(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that 5,5-dimethylhydantoin is expected to have very high mobility 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.
