  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: LC50 Daphnia magna (cladoceran) 2,120 ug/l/48 hr /Static, unmeasured bioassay
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

... A series of experiments /were carried out/ ... to duplicate the conditions for biodegradability that would occur in a river that was receiving phenolic waste effluents from a coking plant. Unsubstituted phenol decomposed rapidly, cresols exhibited a lag period of several days, but 2,4- and 2,3- dimethylphenol seemed to be very persistent.

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

A BCF of 150 was determined for 2,4-dimethylphenol in bluegill sunfish and 28 days exposure(1). According to a classification scheme(2), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is high.

12.4 Mobility in soil

The Koc of 2,4-dimethylphenol is estimated as 430(SRC), using a log Kow of 2.30(1) and a regression-derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this estimated Koc value suggests that 2,4-dimethylphenol is expected to have moderate mobility in soil(SRC). The estimated Koc for 2,4-dimethylphenol is consistent with the Koc in river sediment and coal sediment from a pond near Leipzig, Germany which was determined to be 120 and 105 (log Koc = 2.08 and 2.02), respectively(4).
