12.1 Toxicity

  • Toxicity to fish: no data available
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: no data available
  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

Microbial enzymes and pure cultures have been reported that are capable of degrading n-butyl chloride under aerobic conditions(2). Limited data from screening studies suggest that n-butyl chloride biodegrades slowly under aerobic conditions. When incubated with activated sludges from 3 municipal treatment plants, 2.6% of the n-butyl chloride (500 mg/l) was oxidized after 24 hr(1). At the concentration used, n-butyl chloride was toxic to 1 of the 3 sludges(1). Another screening test using sewage seed and much lower concentrations of n-butyl chloride (1 ppm) resulted in 10% of the theoretical BOD being consumed in 1.4 days(3).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

Using the log octanol/water partition coefficient for n-butyl chloride, 2.64(1), one estimates a BCF of 60 using a recommended regression equation(2,SRC). Therefore, n-butyl chloride will not bioconcentrate in fish and aquatic organisms(2)

12.4 Mobility in soil

Using the water solubility for n-butyl chloride, 1100 mg/l(1), the Koc can be estimated to be 93 and 102 using two recommended regression equations(2,SRC). These estimates indicate that n-butyl chloride will have high mobility in soil(3).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods


The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.

Contaminated packaging

Containers can be triply rinsed (or equivalent) and offered for recycling or reconditioning. Alternatively, the packaging can be punctured to make it unusable for other purposes and then be disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing is possible for combustible packaging materials.
