Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

No experimental data are available. QSAR esitmates suggest that the substance is not ready biodegradable.

If emitted to the environemt, no significant exposure of water, sediment and soil is anticipated as the substance tends to distribute quickly to the atmosphere.

Additional information

On the grounds of the physico-chemical properties of PMVE (gas at environmental conditions with limited water solubility) and the results of environmental fate obtained from distribution modelling, the substance is expected to primarily and rapidly distribute to the atmosphere. No significant exposure of the other environmental compartment is consequently expected.

Moreover, the substance profile indicates the difficulty to properly test PMVE and provide meaningful results of its biodegradation in aqueous systems as well as in sediment and soil.


A further assessment based on Quantitative Structure Activity Relationships (QSARs) has been applied. In particular, the BIOWIN v.4.10, EPI Suite v.4.0 model has been applied.

The prediction of the BIOWIN model suggests that PMVE is not ready biodegradable.
