Description of key information

No information on biodegradation of methacrylic acid in sediments and surface water is available. However, the test substance shows low adsorptive properties (experimental log Kocsoil0.23 – 1.72 for different soil types) and is readily biodegradable. Therefore, simulation studies on biodegradation in surface water and sediment are not required.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
