Description of key information

Phototransformation in air

After evaporation or exposure to air, isobutyl vinyl ether will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes. This fate path is of major importance as the substance will evaporate rapidly from the environmental compartments water and soil into the atmosphere.



Isobutyl vinyl ether is readily biodegradable; therefore, abiotic hydrolysis is not relevant.

However, the substance hydrolyses rapidly in contact with water under acidic conditions. Under neutral conditions, it slowly hydrolyses. Under alkaline conditions, it it hydrolytically stable.



Isobutyl vinyl ether is readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
