Description of key information

Due to the structural properties, hydrolysis is not expected to be an important fate path.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to Lyman et al. (1990) glycols are generally resistant to aqueous environmental hydrolysis. Therefore 1,6-Hexandiol is not expected to hydrolyze in the environment. Thus, no test on hydrolysis is performed.
