Description of key information

Based on the structure and several tests results, there is no potential for hydrolysis and a justification for non submission of hydrolysis data was provided.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Based on the structure of TFA (extremely stable fluorine-carbon bond) there is no potential for hydrolysis and the haloacetates are not identified as chemical structure that hydrolyses by HYDROWIN (version 2.0). This assumption is confirmed by preliminary results presented in Emptage (1993) where no decarboxylation could be detected in water at 100°C and the stability of the substance in aqueous solution observed during the ecotoxicological and biodegradation tests performed on TFA.
