Description of key information

The molecule does not possess any readily hydrolyzable functional groups (esters, carbamates, epoxides, halomethanes (containing 1-3 halogens), and specific alkyl halides), and thus is expected to be stable in water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

From a structural perspective, this molecule does not possess any readily hydrolyzable functional groups (esters, carbamates, epoxides, halomethanes (containing 1-3 halogens), and specific alkyl halides), and thus is expected to be stable in water. Process chemistry and thermodynamics provide insight on the hydrolysis of primary amines. Some aliphatic primary amines are manufactured by reacting an aliphatic alcohol with ammonia over a catalyst. For these amines, it is known that the equilibrium of the process strongly favors amine production. Furthermore, the activation energy demand is of a magnitude that prevents these reactions from proceeding at ambient temperature and pH.
