Category name:
Hydroxy and Ether Methacrylate (H&EMA) Category

Justifications and discussions

Category rationale:
The substance in the category of hydroxy and ether methacrylates are methacrylic acid monoesters of glycols or glycol ethers which provide a consistent set of structure-property- and structure-activity relationships throughout all endpoints. Furthermore, they share common metabolic pathways. Where data gaps exist for one category member, they can be satisfied by read-across to data from other members of the category.
