BAYHIBIT AM is a corrosion inhibitor and an additive for industrial cleaners.
BAYHIBIT AM is produced at an EU manufacturing site (Germany) in closed systems.
BAYHIBIT AM has proved highly effective as a threshold inhibitor. 
Very low additions (ppm range), i.e. in far less than sub-stoichiometric concentrations (calculated on the hardness of the water), prevent the formation of scale and incrustations, respectively. 
Under the conditions found in cooling water, BAYHIBIT AM is a good corrosion inhibitor for carbon steel. 
Moreover, the adsorption of the PBTC anion on inorganic particles suspended in water results in a negative charge on their surfaces and thus in an improvement in dispersibility. 
This is why neutralized BAYHIBIT AM is used as a dispersion agent / deflocculation agent for inorganic slurries and slips.
BAYHIBIT AM is a multi-constituent substance that contains of ca. 43% (w/w) 2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid ("PBTC"), ca. 49% (w/w) water and several very  low-concentrated impurities. 
For this reason, the main focus of this toxicokinetic statement is on toxicokinetic of 2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid ("PBTC") in aqueous solution. 
This approach is in line with OECD SIDS "PBTC" and BUA report 182 on 2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid. 
Both reports refer to the aqueous solution of PBTC (respectively BAYHIBIT AM) or of its sodium salts.

BAYHIBIT AM is a multi-constituent, aqueous substance that is liquid at room temperature and completely miscible in water. 
BAYHIBIT AMs main constituent (beside water) at about 43% is 2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid with a molecular weight of 270 g/mol. 
The partition coefficient of 2-phosphono-butane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid (logPow = -1.36 at 25°C) was determined by calculation (using the software program EPISuite v. 3.20). 
The water solubility of the main constituent (655 g/L at 25°C ) was also calculated (program WSKOW v1.14). 
The vapour pressure of 2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid was calculated to be 8.08 x 10-9Pa at 25 °C (calculated by EPIWIN (v3.12)). 

The pKs values at 20°C were calculated by software ACD ChemSketch ACD/Labs 7.00 Release, Product Version 7.05. as follows:
Dissociation equilibrium       pKs
H5L/H+H4L                      = 0.66 ¿ = 1.5
H4L/H+H3L                      = 3.78 ¿ = 4.2
H3L/H+H2L                      = 4.34 ¿ = 4.54
H2L/H+HL                       = 4.85 ¿ = 5.04
HL/H+L                         = 8.09 ¿ = 9.09

In addition to a sparing dosage rate in combination with reliable scale inhibition, these products are also characterised by high and consistent quality “Made in Germany”.

Stability to hydrolysis
BAYHIBIT can be used in aqueoussolutions, lyes and acids up to temperaturesconsiderably above 100 °C. 
Investigations ofthe stability have shown that, for example,the half-life (50 % degradation toorthophosphate) in process water with a pHof 9 and a temperature of 200 °C is around20 hours.

Inhibitor loss / turbidity region
When combined with polyvalent cations,threshold inhibitors can form poorly solublesalts which, when they exceed the solubilitylimits, often result in turbidity. 
Fieldexperience and special trials have shownthat the tendency of the inhibitor to preci-pitate caused by, for example, Ca2+ andFe(III) is much lower in BAYHIBIT than inother phosphonates.
For this reason, inhibitor losses are lowwhen BAYHIBIT is used.

Applications of BAYHIBIT AM:
Washing and cleaning agents
Water treatment
Textile auxiliaries
Colouring agent and pigment preparations
Metal surface treatment
Concrete industry
Building material preparations
Preparations for the food processing technology
Drinking water purification

In conclusion, 2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid revealed a high water solubility, is very hydrophilic, and has a very low vapour pressure. 
Moreover, BAYHIBIT AM is (nearly) non-dissociated at very low pH values and is not completely dissociated at higher pH values.
The pH value of 1% aqueous solution of BAYHIBIT AM was determined to be 1.9, of the undiluted substance 0.0.
Dermal absorption
Dermal absorption, the process by which a substance is transported across the skin and taken up into the living tissue of the body, is a complex process. 
The skin is a multilayered biomembrane with particular absorption characteristics. 
BAYHIBIT AM is a dynamic, living tissue and as such BAYHIBIT AMs absorption characteristics are susceptible to constant changes.
The barrier properties of skin almost exclusively reside in BAYHIBIT AMs outermost layer, the stratum corneum, which is composed of essentially dead keratinocytes.
Upon contact with the skin, a compound penetrates into the dead stratum and may subsequently reach the viable epidermis, the dermis and the vascular network. 
During the absorption process, the compound may be subject to biotransformation.
The stratum corneum provides BAYHIBIT AMs greatest barrier function against hydrophilic compounds, whereas the viable epidermis is most resistant to highly lipophilic compounds.
Depending on the high water solubility and the very low logPow (equivalent to a very low lipophilic character), 2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid is not likely to penetrate the first skin barrier (stratum corneum).
Thus, upon dermal contact, the bioavailability of BAYHIBIT AM is expected to be very low and therefore negligible.

Resorption after uptake via inhalation
Due to BAYHIBIT AMs very low vapour pressure,2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acidis assumed to be toxicologically relevant for inhalation exposure primarily in the form of aerosols released.
Non-polar substances are easily resorbed by the lungs. 
Opposed to that, water-soluble substances are mainly excreted by the nasal and bronchiolar mucosa before reaching the alveolar region.
Thus, the bioavailability of BAYHIBIT AM aerosols is expected to be very low after inhalation. 

Resorption after oral uptake
After oral uptake, water as such is absorbed by the small intestine, is retained in the liver and then transported to and excreted via the kidneys. 
The same is for salts, other nutrients and substances that are resorbed analogously, i.e. can pass the membranes of body cells.
In the gastrointestinal tract, the degree of resorption of substances that dissociate depends on the pH value.
Based on the pKs values, 2-phosphonobutane-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid is either nearly not dissociated, in the stomach (pH 1 ¿ 3), or is dissociated to a large extent, in the small intestine (pH 7.6). 
Consequently, absorption takes place mainly in the stomach due to the pH environment.

BAYHIBIT AM is a strong acid. 
When BAYHIBIT AM ismixed with alkali, a heat of neutralization ofaround 210 kJ (approx. 50 kcal) is releasedper mole PBTC. 
This is why the finaltemperature of a solution produced withoutcooling by neutralizing BAYHIBIT AM(commercial product) with 20 % sodiumhydroxide solution is around 50 °C higherthan the temperature of the startingsolutions. 
If higher concentrations of sodiumhydroxide are used, it must be expected thatthe solution will begin to boil if BAYHIBIT AM is notcooled.

Phosphonobutane tricarboxylic acid is excellent as both antiscalants and corrosion inhibitors, because of BAYHIBIT AMs structural feature of carboxylic acid and phosphoric acid.

Phosphonates derived from phosphorous (phosphonic) acid are employed in the applications of scale Inhibition, sequestration, dispersion and corrosion inhibition in addition to the main applications of agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers, pesticides, and soil conditioners. 
Phosphonates offer a wide range of sequestrants to control metal ions in aqueous systems. 
By forming stable water soluble complexes with multivalent metal ions, phosphonates prevent undesired interaction by blocking normal reactivity of metal ions. 
This ability contributes to function as threshold industrial water treatment and metal treatment processes (antiscalants, corrosion inhibitors, chelants, sludge conditioners, pulp bleachings, deflocculants, dispersants, metal cleaners, electroplating and crystal growth modifiers). 
Phosphonates are also used in manufacturing detergents, cosmetics and personal care products for special functions such as low levels iron control, stain removal, bleach stabilization, peroxide stabilization and anti-encrustation. 
Phosphonates existing in various compounds as acids or salts are marketed in the form of concentrated solutions.
