Description of key information

The substance is stable to hydrolysis at environmentally relevant temperatures and pH's i.e. half life of greater than 1 year.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A screening study was conducted in accordance with OECD 111. A stock solution of 0.2% m/v 2 -butyl-2 -ethylpropanediol (BEPD) was stored at 50°C for 5 days. The amount of BEPD recovered was greater than 99% at pH 4, 7 and 9 indicating that the substance is stable to hydrolysis at environmentally relevant temperatures and pH's i.e. half life of greater than 1 year.
