  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

ANAEROBIC DEGRADATION OF PHENOLIC COMPOUNDS TO METHANE AND CARBON DIOXIDE IN SEWAGE SLUDGE DIGESTION OCCURRED IN BOTH GROUND WATER AND LABORATORY DIGESTORS. WATER SAMPLES WERE COLLECTED FROM THE NEAR SURFACE GROUND WATER IN AN AREA CONTAMINATED WITH PLANT PROCESS WASTES RESULTING FROM OPERATION OF A COAL TAR DISTILLING AND WOOD TREATING PLANT. PHENOLIC COMPOUNDS (INCLUDING 3,5-DIMETHYLPHENOL) WERE ISOLATED FROM THE AQUEOUS SAMPLES BY DICHLOROMETHANE EXTRACTION.

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 36 was calculated for 3,5-dimethylphenol(SRC), using a log Kow of 2.35(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is moderate.

12.4 Mobility in soil

The Koc of 3,5-dimethylphenol in soils with an organic carbon content <0.15% ranged from 460-1400; the Koc for 3,5-dimethylphenol in Dormont soil (organic carbon content = 1.5%) was determined to be 190(1). According to a classification scheme(2), these Koc values suggest that 3,5-dimethylphenol is expected to have moderate to low mobility in soil(SRC).
