Description of key information

Peer-reviewed literature.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in soil:
30 d
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

10% mineralisation after 24 hours at 15°C.

Assuming first order degradation kinetics and a DT90 of maximum 100 days, the estimated DT50 for lysine is 30 days.

The data provided here is for lysine, but the information can be used for L-lysine HCl. It is not expected that the HCl group will have an influence on adsorption and biodegradability of the substance.
