Description of key information

Additional information

Data are not available to allow the distribution of DBTL, within the environment to be modelled. However, based on the low water solubility and the Log Kow of 4.44 of the substance it is unlikely to be associated with water to a significant degree but is more likely to be associated with soils and sediment. It is therefore possible that should it enter a sewage treatment plant (STP) it could be associated with sludge with subsequent transfer to agricultural soil. Based on the hydrolysis data it is also probable that some hydrolysis of DBTL will occur both in STPs and the aqautic environment.

Based on the known chemical properties it is unlikely to be present in air to any significant degree.
