Study design

Analytical monitoring:
yes
Details on sampling:
Samples were taken at 3.5, 23, 25.5, 29 47, 49.5 and 52 hr for gas chromatograohy analysis.
Buffers:
pH4, Potassium hydrogen phthalate 0.05 mol/ml

pH7, Disodium hydrogen orthophosphate (anhydrous) 0.03 mol/ml, Potassium dihydrogen orthophosphate 0.02 mol/ml and Sodium chloride 0.02 mol/ml

pH9, Disodium tetraborate, 0.01 mol/ml and Sodium chloride 0.02 mol/ml.


Details on test conditions:
Test sample solutions were prepared in stoppered glass flasks at a nominal concentration of 30 mg/L in the three buffer solutions. A 1% co-solvent of acetone was used to aid solubility. The test solutions were split into individual vessels for each data point and shielded from light whilst maintained at the test temperature. Testing was conducted at pH 4, pH 7 and pH 9, with solutions being maintained at 50.0, 60.0 and 70.0 ± 0.5 °C.

Identification of hydrolysis products was performed. Selected sample solutions were additionally analysed by gas chromatography mass spectroscopy (GC-MS) using the GC conditions described. The concentration ofthe test sample solution was determined by gas chromatography (GC). An aliquot (20 mL) of each sample was extracted with three portions (3 x 3 ml) of methyl tertbutyl ether (MTBE), using approximately 2 g of sodium chloride added to the aqueous phase to aid extraction. The combined extracts were diluted to 1.0 ml in a volumetric flask. Duplicate standard solutions of test item were prepared in MTBE at a nominal concentration of 6O mg/L. Incubations were upto 52 hr.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
The test substance was determined to have a hydrolysis half-life of approximately 228 hr (9.5 days) over a pH range of 4 - 9. The diol of the test substances was observed to be the primary hydrolysis product.
Executive summary:

The test substance, 2,3-epoxypropyl neodecanoate was accessed for pH dependent hydrolysis by an O.E.C.D. test guideline 111 study. The test substance was determined to have a hydrolysis half-life of approximately 228 hr (9.5 days) over a pH range of 4 - 9. The diol of the test substances was observed to be the primary hydrolysis product. It is anticipated that Neononanoic acid glycidyl ester will have a similar hydrolysis half-life and hydrolysis.
