Description of key information

DT50 > 1 year at 25 °C (pH 7) (OECD 111)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life for hydrolysis:
1 yr
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

The hydrolysis of 2-methoxyethyl acrylate was investigated in one study (MITI, 2005) according to OECD guideline 111 under GLP conditions. In this study, the hydrolytic properties of the substance were tested for various durations ranging from 4 to 100 days at the pH values 1.2, 4, 7 and 9. The tested temperatures ranged from 20 to 70 °C. The reported half-life of the substance is stated as > 1 year at 25 °C and pH 7 and as 84.6 h at 25 °Cand pH 9 (extrapolated values).
