Additional information

An experimental ready biodegradation test was conducted according to OECD TG 301C. The substance was exposed to activated sludge at 24.0 - 26.0 degree C for 28 days. No biodegradation occurred within this time period as indicated by both indirect and direct analyses. The substance is considered not to be biodegradable.

However the screening test inherent to the water biodegradability of the degradation product, calculated using the same software BIOWIN v4.10,indicate that the corresponding acids (4 -METHAc, 3 -METHAc) are expected to be readily biodegradable.
