Description of key information

Biodegradation in water: screening tests: Key study: Readily biodegradable: 61% after 8 days and 80% after 28 days (OECD 301F). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Based on the results of the biodegradability of methyl monochloroacetate in the respirometric test (OECD 301F), it is concluded that the test substance is readily biodegradable. This result is supported by further experimental data on readily biodegradabiliy (OECD 301E), experimental data on inherent biodegradability (OECD 302B) and estimated data (EPI Suite).
