Additional information

C4 acrylate was not biodegraded in a ready biodegradability test conducted according to OECD test guideline 301B. However, owing to process controls C4 acrylate is not expected to be released in significant amounts to aquatic systems or to attain significant concentrations in aquatic systems by indirect exposure. Predicted environmental concentrations in freshwater and marine water are less than the limit of quantitation. No further testing has been proposed.
