Description of key information

According to EU Method C.4-C (Determination of the "Ready" Biodegradability - Carbon Dioxide Evolution Test) 18 % degradation of the test item was obseved within 28 days (Bayer AG 1993). M-tolyl isocyanate is considered to be not readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed
