Additional information

The biodegradation of 2-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate was investigated in two different guideline studies. The first study was conducted according to “EEC Directive 79/831 Annex V, Part C: Methods for the determination of Ecotoxicity, 5.2. Biotic degradation” using domestic activated sludge, non-adapted. The result of this investigation showed 95.3% degradation after 28 days passing the 10-day window. A OECD 301E guideline study showed a biodegradation of >95% within 28 days testing sewage, predominantly domestic.
