Description of key information

Hydrolysis is expected to be an important fafte process in an acidic environment. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to the experimental results N-Vinylcaprolactam will hydrolyse rapidly in an acidic environment with a half life time of 6,5h at 25°C. In neutral and alkaline environment N-Vinylcaprolactam will hydrolyse slowly.
