Additional information

No information on the toxicokinetic behaviour of the submission substance is available. Information from a peer-reviewed secondary source (OECD SIDS) shows that the major component of the submission substance, dimethyl terephthalate, is well absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract, metabolised by hydrolysis to terephthalic acid (in mice: monomethyl terephthalate), and mainly excreted in the urine.
