Description of key information

Additional information

The test substance is poorly biodegradable (3.6% after 28 days). However, N-vinylformamide shows very low adsorptive (log Koc < 1.25) as well as bioaccumulative properties (log Pow = -0.11). Furthermore, the different ecotoxicological studies showed no acute toxicity of N-vinylformamide (EC and LC50 values above 100 mg/L). Based on these results N-vinylformamide can be evaluated to be not harmful in the environment; thus, the persistence of the test substance seems to be acceptable. Therefore, simulation studies on surface water and sediments are not provided.
