Additional information

In accordance with REACH Regulation 1907/2006/EC Annex IX section 9.2.1.2, a study on abiotic degradation is required as benzyldimethylamine is not ready biodegradable. Based on the structure of benzyldimethylamine no hydrolysis is expected as no hydrolysable groups are present. The substance can thus be regarded as hydrolytically stable. This is further supported by its application and use in aqueous solution. In addition, a calculation with EPIWIN v4.00 also predicts no hydrolysable groups.
