Additional information

After emission or evaporation to air the product will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes. In contrast, abiotic degradation by hydrolysis is not of major concern, because the test substance will hydrolyze slowly at pH 7 and 11. No degradation was observed at pH 3. However, since ethyl methacrylate is readily biodegradable, hydrolysis is not the predominant degradation route.
