Description of key information

Additional information

In contact with water, Butyl acrylate (BA) will hydrolyse very slowly.

Photodegradation in air will proceed rapidly.

In water, sewage treatment plants and soil rapid degradation is expected, since BA was readily biodegradable in an OECD 310 -Screening test.

Based on an experimental log Pow and calculated BCF, a potential for bioaccumulation has not to be expected.

Adsorption of Butyl acrylate to the solid soil phase is not expected. The estimated Koc indicates that n-Butyl acrylate will exhibit a medium to high mobility in soil.

Fugacity model calculation (Mackay Level I) revealed the atmosphere as the main target compartment for distribution which is also indicated by the substance's physicochemical properties.
