  • 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

In the Japanese MITI test, using an initial concn of 100 ppm 4-chlorotoluene, <30% of the theoretical BOD was reached in 14 days using an activated sludge inoculum(1,2). In the modified MITI test, using an initial concentration of 100 ppm 4-chlorotoluene, 0% of the theoretical BOD was reached in 14 days(3). A microbial blend of 10 different bacteria and 2 fungi was used to degrade 4-chlorotoluene at a concentration of 200 mg/l; complete biodegradation occurred in 3 days(4). Using the cultivation method, 4-chlorotoluene at 20 mg/l was 44% and 64% biodegraded in three days using a river water and a seawater inoculum, respectively(5). An isolated strain of Pseudomonas putida 39/D oxidized 4-chlorotoluene to (+)-cis-4-chloro-2,3-dihydroxy-1-methylcyclohexa-4,6-diene (6). 4-Chlorotoluene is metabolized via cis-dihydrodiol to its respective catechol which is resistant to further degradation(7).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

Carp exposed to 4-chlorotoluene at 0.03 and 0.3 mg/L had measured BCF values of 14-101.6 and 21.9-76.5, respectively(1). An estimated BCF value of 200 was calculated for 4-chlorotoluene(SRC), using a measured log Kow of 3.33(2) and a recommended regression-derived equation(3). According to a recommended classification scheme(4), these BCF values suggest that some bioconcentration in aquatic organisms will occur(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

The Koc of 4-chlorotoluene is estimated as approximately 340(SRC), using an experimental water solubility of 106 mg/l at 20°C(1,SRC) and a regression-derived equation(2,SRC). According to a recommended classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that 4-chlorotoluene will have moderate mobility in soil(SRC).

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.
