Additional information

Toxicity of 2 -isocyanatoethyl-methacrylate (MOI) on microorganisms was assessed on the basis of a toxic control tested in the biodegradation study conducted by Simon (2012). This test was performed according to OECD Guideline 301B and EU Method C.4 -C under GLP conditions. In this toxic control, test substance and reference substance were incubated in activated sludge at a concentration of approximately 20 mg/L DOC, respectively, at 22 ± 2 °C. At the end of the test, the biodegradation was 100%, indicating that MOI has no inhibitory effect on the activity of the sludge microorganisms.
