Description of key information

Ethane-1,2 -diol, propoxylated, is found to be stable at 50°C at all three pH values (4, 7 and 9). Therefore, it can be assumed that the test item is also stable at 25°C and no half-life times and hydrolysis rates were calculated. Ethane-1,2 -diol, propoxylated as a NLP contains different molecular weight fractions (= NLP-fraction) which behave similar in hydrolysis reaction (Currenta, 2009).
