Description of key information

Additional information

In contact with water, Methyl acrylate will hydrolyse slowly. Photodegradation in air will proceed slowly, too. In water, sewage treatment plants and soil rapid degradation is expected, since MA was readily biodegradable in a OECD 310 -Screening test. Based on an experimental log Pow and subsequently calculated BCF, a potential for bioaccumulation has not to be expected. Adsorption of Methyl acrylate to the solid soil phase is not expected. The estimated Koc indicates that methyl acrylate will exhibit a very 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.
