12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: LC50; Species: Pimephales promelas (Fathead minnow); Conditions: static; Concentration: 19 mg/L for 96 hr
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: IC50 (immobilization concentration); Species: Daphnia magna (Water flea); Conditions: static; Concentration: 2.14 umol/L for 48 hr. Using a semi-static procedure, the log of the 21 day IC50 was 1.71 umol/L for 4-nitrotoluene.
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: 4-Nitrotoluene, present at 100 mg/L, reached 0.8% of its theoretical BOD in 2 weeks using an activated sludge inoculum at 30 mg/L in the Japanese MITI test(1) which indicates the compound is not readily biodegradable(1). Two studies demonstrated that 4-nitrotoluene could be completely degraded by unacclimated sludge withing two weeks when lower concentrations of 4-nitrotoluene (10 ppm) were used(2,3). When nitrotoluene-adapted activated sludges were used as an inoculum, however, 4-nitrotoluene was almost completely degraded (~98%) within 5 days, even when higher concentrations (200 mg/L) of 4-nitrotoluene were used(4). 2-Amino-4-methylphenol has been identified as a microbial degradation product of 4-nitrotoluene(5). Using a mixed culture isolated from a contaminated soil (near an ammunition plant), 4-nitrotoluene (at initial concentrations of 5 mg/L) degraded completely in 1 to 3 days in aerobic batch and continuous reactor tests(6).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 13 was calculated for 4-nitrotoluene(SRC), using a log Kow of 2.37(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). The BCF for 4-nitrotoluene has been measured to be low in an unidentified fish and in carp (Carprinus carpio)(4,5).

12.4 Mobility in soil

A log Koc value of 2.14 (Koc = 138) was experimentally determined for 4-nitrotoluene in a single lake sediment from China(1). Using a structure estimation method based on molecular connectivity indices(2), the Koc of 4-nitrotoluene can be estimated to be 363(SRC). According to a classification scheme(3), the estimated and experimental Koc values suggest that 4-nitrotoluene is expected to have high to moderate mobility in soil.

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods
