Description of key information

Additional information

In contact with water, Isobutyl acrylate will hydrolyse slowly. Photodegradation in air will proceed slowly, too. In water, sewage treatment plants and soil rapid degradation is expected, since iBA was readily biodegradable in a OECD 310 -Screening test. Based on an experimental log Pow and calculated BCF, a potential for bioaccumulation is not to be expected. Adsorption of isobutyl acrylate to the solid soil phase is not expected.

Fugacity model calculation (Mackay Level I) revealed the atmosphere as the main target compartment for distribution which is also indicated by the substance's physicochemical properties.
