Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

Under standard test conditions in Dystar reports (1998) MG did not show to be readily biodegradable (0.3%, 14 days, OECD 301C). This value is confirmed by EpiSuite prediction and by the result of the analogous substance Crystal Violet 4. An indication of inherent biodegradation is given by Dystar reports (1998) where a value of 82% of degradation in Zahn-Wellens test is reported, but any detail is missing about time and testing conditions.
