Additional information

Ammonium thiocyanate as a representative member of the category is readily biodegradable according to the results of an OECD 301D test. The thiocyanates in this category all have estimated log Kow values less than zero, indicating a low potential for adsorption. However, SCN- can adsorb to soils with a large anion exchange capacity (Fe, Al and Mn oxides, clay minerals), especially at high temperatures. The surfaces of most soil particles have low anion exchange capacity, thus this mechanism would be of minor relevance.
