Section 12 - Ecological Information

Ecotoxicity: Fish: Fathead Minnow: LC50 = 0.028 mg/L; 96 Hr.; UnspecifiedFish: Rainbow trout: LC50 =3.9 mg/L; 96 Hr.; UnspecifiedFish: Goldfish: LC50 =5.74 mg/L; 48 Hr.; UnspecifiedWater flea Daphnia: EC50 = 3.9 mg/L; 48 Hr.; Unspecified The product is chemically identically to the natural amino acid L-Serine and can therefore be degraded microbiologically.
Environmental: An estimated BCF value of 0.33 was calculated for 1,3-benzenediamine, using an estimated log Kow of -0.33 and a recommended regression-derived equation. BCF values of 1.3 to 4.6 and <1.6 to 24 were measured for 1,3-benzenediamine in carp at 2 and 0.2 mg/l, respectively. According to a classification scheme, these BCF values suggest that bioconcentration in acquatic organisms is low.
Physical: No information found.
Other: The Koc of 1,3-benzenediamine is estimated as approximately 16, using a measured log Kow of -0.33 and a regression-derived equation. According to a recommended classification scheme, this estimated Koc value suggests that 1,3-benzenediamine is expected to have very high mobility in soil. However, anilines are expected to bind strongly to humus or organic matter in soils due to the high reactivity of the aromatic amino group; therefore, mobility may be much lower in some soils.
