Description of key information

ETU (Imidazolidine-2-thione) was found to be extremely stable toward hydrolysis. No changes in concentration were observed in aqueous solutions held at 90°C for 3 months.  As a consequence, no details on hydrolysis and appearance of transformation products are given.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Based upon its chemical structure and the absence of hydrolysable function, ETU (Imidazolidine-2 -thione) can be considered as stable in water. In a study, ETU was found to be extremely stable toward hydrolysis. No changes in concentration were observed in aqueous solutions held at 90°C for 3 months. As a consequence, no details on hydrolysis and appearance of transformation products are given. This result comes to reinforce the assumption based upon the chemical structure of the substance.
