Additional information

Hydrolysis is a common degradation route in the environment, where reaction of a substance RX with water occurs with a net exchange of the X group by an OH at the reaction centre, such that RX + H2OROH + HX.

For the substance, it can be estimated that hydrolysis does not occur because there are no hydrolysable groups in any of the structures.

Hydrolysable organic groups are in fact those groups that can react with water like Esters, Anhydrides, Amides, Carbammates, Nitriles, Cyanates, Epoxides, Halomethanes, Alkylhalides and Urea, and none of these groups are present within the substance or its impurities.

The difference in sulphonation can have an influence on water solubility, but not on the hydrolysation potential, since both substances have no hydrolysable groups in the chemical structure.
