Description of key information

Hydrolysis of tert-dodecanethiol was studied with OECD TG 111. Disappearance of test item was observed but cannot be attributed to hydrolysis. Most likely it was due to fugacity from the oversaturated solution by adsorption of volatilisation.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Hydrolysis of tert-dodecanethiol was studied at pH 4, 7 and 9, using the OECD TG 111. A significant reduction of substance concentration was observed at all pH. As the structure of the molecule does not account for a hydrolytical reaction, it is likely that the measured decay of solution concentrations is due to other phenomena such as adsorption or volatilisation, evenmore as the tested concentrations were significantly above the water solubility limit.
