Description of key information

MPA is readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

MPA was tested for its ready biodegradability in water in a 28 d DOC Die-Away test under GLP by Thiebaud (1994). The test resulted in a final degradation rate of 96% based on the DOC removal and the 10 d window was respected. Thus, the test item can be characterized as readily biodegradable.
