Description of key information

According to “ANNEX VIII- STANDARD INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBSTANCES MANUFACTURED OR IMPORTED IN QUANTITIES OF 10 TONNES OR MORE , study for  Hydrolysis as a function of pH does not need  to be conducted if:
-the substance is ready biodegradable.
As 2-(2-(2-butoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethanol is ready biodegradable a Hydrolysis study does not need to be conducted.
Hydrolysis is not expected to be an important environmental fate process since this compound lacks functional groups that hydrolyze under environmental conditions.
Hydrolysis is a chemical reaction during which molecules of water (H2O) are split into hydrogen cations (H+, conventionally referred to as protons) and hydroxide anions (OH−) in the process of a chemical mechanism).
This substance, which contains primarily ether linkages, is not anticipated to hydrolyze readily in water at neutral pHs.
