Description of key information

Additional information

After evaporation or exposure to the air, isobutyl vinyl ether will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes with OH-radicals. This fate path is of major importance as the substance will evaportae rapidly from the environmental compartments water and soil into the atmosphere. Depending on the environmental conditions, hydrolysis is considered to be an important fate path in the environment, especially in acidic surface water.
