Category name:
PM_Multifunctional Methacrylates

Justifications and discussions

Category rationale:
The substance in the category of multifunctional methacrylates are methacrylic acid esters of glycols or aliphatic polyols which provide a consistent set of structure-property- and structure-activity relationships throughout all endpoints. Furthermore, they share common metabolic pathways after rapid primary hydrolysis. Where data gaps exist for one category member, they can be satisfied by read-across to data from the alcohol and methacrylic metabolites or other members of the category.
