Additional information

The substance rapidly (instantaneously) hydrolyses to chlorendic acid.

An expert statement concerning the hydrolysis as a function of pH of Chlorendic Anhydride, is attached to the hydrolysis endpoint summary.

Chlorendic acid was found to rapidly degrade in UV light, both in water (half-life 16 days) and on solid surfaces ( half-life 5 days). The substance is fairly persistent in soil with half-life from 140 days (1 mg/kg concentration) to 280 days (at 10mg.kg).
