Additional information

No information concerning effects on sediment-organisms are available for hydroxypropyl acrylate. Nevertheless, since the substance is not bioaccumulative (log Pow = 0.2), a considerable exposure of sediment organisms is not expected. Furthermore, hydroxypropyl acrylate shows a low potential of adsorption to solid particles (log Koc = 0.18). Hence, information about effects on sediment organisms is not required and the equilibrium partitioning method has been used for assessing the hazard to sediment organisms.
