Additional information

After emission or evaporation to air the product is exspected to be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes. In contrast, abiotic degradation by hydrolysis is not of major concern, because the test substance will hydrolyze slowly at pH 7 and 11. No hydrolysis was observed at pH 3. However, since methyl methacrylate is readily biodegradable, hydrolysis is not the predominant degradation route.
