Additional information

3-methoxybutyl acetate is shown to be readily biodegradable on the basis of a GLP compliant, guideline study by Hoechst AG (1995). This showed 3-methoxybutyl acetate to have degraded by >70% at the end of the 10 day window. 3-methoxybutyl acetate is considered to have a low potential for adsorption and a low potential for bioaccumulation on the basis of its log Kow value of 1.0074 calculated using KOWWIN (USEPA, 2008).


3-methoxybutyl acetate is not considered likely to persist in the environment as it is readily biodegradable and has a low potential for bioaccumulation and adsorption to sediment.
