Additional information

Sulfadimidine is predicted no ready-biodegradable by BIOWIN v.4.10.

Some data regarding biodegradation with activated sludge and biodegradation in the soil are reported in HSDB Report of Sulfamethazine (synonym of Sulfadimidine): Sulfadimidine was completely degraded within 20 days in activated sludge systems, indicating that this substance may undergo biodegradation in soil (ref. Ingerslev et all, Environ Toxicol Chem 19: 2467-73, 2000). However, less than 1% degradation after 64 days in loamy sand and clay silt suggests that biodegradation will be slow in some soils (ref. Thiele-Bruhn S; J Plant Nutr Soil Sci 166: 145-167, 2003).
