Description of key information

Additional information

Data on physico-chemical properties for 3-methoxybutyl acetate are available from peer-reviewed handbooks and proprietary data. Where handbooks are used, the introduction to the handbooks has been assessed and it has been determined that values from these are based on a critical evaluation of peer-reviewed data and a consequent selection of a reliable and representative value for the property under investigation. Therefore, although the method used is not known, the values are acceptable as they are from a reliable secondary source of physico-chemical data and have been given a Klimisch score of 2 to reflect this..

Proprietary data that is used as key studies has been given a Klimisch score of 1 or 2 following assessment of its reliability.

For partition coefficient a value calculated using KOWWIN (USEPA, 2008) is considered reliable as a key study as the calculated value is far below the Kow value considered likely to be bioaccumulative.

According to criteria in Directive 67/548/EEC and Regulation (EC) No. 1272/2008 the substance is not classified on the basis of physico-chemical properties.
