Description of key information

Based on the low measured log Pow  value (log Pow= 2.08, Evonik Industries, 2007) for Ethyltriglycol methacrylate a bioaccumulation rate of 11.7 was estimated according to the formula of Veith et al. 1979 (Guidance R.7C). A low bioaccumulation potential  with a BCF of 9.70 has been estimated with EPIWIN, 2012, program BCFBAF (Evonik Industries, 2012).
