Additional information


After evaporation or exposure to the air, the substance and its hydrolysis product CAS 147 -57 -5 will be slowly degraded by photochemical processes.

This estimation refers to dry air. In mist, rain, droplets and aerosols, hydrolysis will be the major fate process of the acid chloride due to the short half-life in aqueous solution. Therefore this estimate may be of low relevance for 2 -ethylhexanoyl chloride.


In contact with water 2 -ethylhexanoyl chloride will hydrolyse rapidly.
