Description of key information

2 -EHMA is readily biodegradable, further testing is not necessary. Overall, it is concluded that EHMA is rapidly biodegradable in sediments.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No information concerning biodegradation of 2 -Ethylhexyl methacrylate or any other substances in the category of lower methacrylatesin sediments and surface water are available.

However, according to a GLP guideline study the test substance is readily biodegradable. Therefore, simulation studies on biodegradation in surface water and sediment are not provided.
