Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Additional information

3-MPA was assessed in a DOC Die-Away test under GLP by Thiebaud (1994) to be readily biodegradable after 28 days. Consequently, no further simulation testing on the biodegradability of 3-MPA and no study on its hydrolysis were necessary. As an additional information, hydrolysis of 3-MPA can not be expected to occur as there are no parts of the molecular structure of 3-MPA, that may have a susceptibility to hydrolysis.

Studies on bioaccumulation in water organisms and on adsorption of 3-MPA were considered to be not necessary as the substance has an experimentally determined log Kow far below 3.0 and thus a low potential for bioaccumulation and for adsorption, respectively.
