Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The effect of pH on the hydrolysis of 14C-dimethylhydantoin (DMH) was determined in a 30-day hydrolysis study. DMH did not significantly hydrolyze in the pH range of 5-9. DMH is stable in aqueous solutions at pH 5, 7 and 9 (t½ > 1 year (25°C)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Hydrolysis of radiolabelled DMH in aqueous media at 25°C was studied at pH 5, pH 9 and at pH 7 in two buffers: TRIS and HEPES. No hydrolysis was noted at pH 5 and 9. Minimal hydrolysis was observed at pH 7 giving half-lives of 3194 days (TRIS) and 1715 days (HEPES).
