    Case Study: Assessment of an Extended Chemical Category, the Short-chain Methacrylates, Targeted on Bioaccumulation

    This case study intends to illustrate this concept for the short chain methacrylates,originally composed of four chemicals, for the bioaccumulation endpoint. The OECD QSAR Toolbox identified about 160 chemicals potentially falling within the applicability domain of the original category, and the hypothesis tested in this case study is the possibility to predict the bioaccumulation potential for untested members of the category. The

    Sustainable Chemistry: Evidence on Innovation from Patent Data

    This report was initiated by the OECD’s Sustainable Chemistry Issue Team and uses patent data to investigate green chemistry innovation trends. Due to the nature of the International Patent Classification (IPC) system it was not possible to identify a broad all-encompassing green chemistry indicator. As a consequence we have investigated selected technologies which can be identified reliably using IPC classes.While these are by no
