Description of key information

After evaporation or exposure to the air, the product will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes with OH-radicals.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

 Based on the calculation according to SRC AOP v1.92, isobutyl vinyl ether is indirectly photodegraded by reaction with hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere with a half-life (t1/2) of about 8 hours taking into account a 24-h day and a mean OH radical concentration of 5.0E+05 molecules per cm³ (BASF 2007).
