Description of key information

Additional information

There is no information concerning terrestrial toxicity of Ethyltriglycol methacrylate available. However, the substance shows a low adsorptive potential to soil (based on an estimated log Koc of 1.74 (estimated via EPIWEB, KocWin method version 2.00, Evonik Industries 2013)) as well as a low bioaccumulative (log Pow = 2.08 (measured), please see Chapter: 4.7, Evonik Industries AG, 2007) potential. According to test guideline OECD 301 F Ethyltriglycol methacrylate was assessed to be readily biodegradable in activated sludge and the substance met the 10-day window. ( please see chapter 5.2.1. biodegradation, Evonik Industries, 1999).

Results from a Mackay level III distribution modelling indicate that if Ethyltriglycol methacrylate is released to air, it mainly distributes to soil (82.3%). A very small amount remains in the air (0.2%) or partitions to water (17.5%). If the substance is released into water, it mainly remains in water (99.8%) (please see chapter 5.4.3, Evonik Industries AG, 2011).
