Category definition:
2-acrylamidopropanesulphonic acid and its mineral salts
Category rationale:
2-acrylamidopropanesulphonic acid and its mineral salts freely dissociate to 2-acrylamideopropanesulphonate and the respective cation. 2-acrylamidopropanesulphonic acid and its mineral salts can be considered as a category with all members sharing the same representative moiety, the sulphonate anion.Manufacture and use of the category members are also interlinked. The data summarized in this report are focused on the environmental and health effects from the sulphonate anion but include the effects of like cations. Any toxicological effects specifically related to the cationic component are not part of the present report.
