Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Additional information

In contact with water, Methyl acrylate will hydrolyse slowly. Photodegradation in air will also proceed slowly. Since MA is readily biodegradable based on an OECD 310 Screening test (90-100 % of degradation after 28 days), rapid degradation is expected in water, sewage treatment plants and soil. Based on an experimental log Pow of 0.739 at 25°C, and subsequently on a calculated BCF of 3.16, a potential for bioaccumulation is expected to be low. Based on an estimated Koc of 6.4, adsorption of Methyl acrylate to the solid soil phase is not expected. The estimated Koc indicates that methyl acrylate will exhibit a very high mobility in soil.

Fugacity model calculation (Mackay Level I) revealed the atmosphere as the main target compartment for distribution (> 80%), which is also indicated by the substance’s physicochemical properties.
