Additional information

2 -methylpropane-2-thiol is not readily biodegradable. 2 -methylpropane-2-thiol is not expected to bioaccumulate or adsorb to suspended solids and sediment in water, based on a log Kow of less than 3. Structural analysis of 2 -methylpropane-2-thiol indicates that it is not expected to undergo hydrolysis in the environment, due to a lack of functional groups. The physico-chemical properties of 2 -methylpropane-2-thiol indicate that the majority of the substance will ultimately be released into the atmosphere, where it will degrade through photolysis with OH with a half life of 0.47 days.
