Additional information

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII, the study does not need to be performed if the substance is readily biodegradable or inorganic. Diethanolamine is readily biodegradable. Further, according to Kollig et al. (1993) and Boethling & Mackay (2000) amines and alcohols are generally resistant to hydrolysis because they do not contain labile functional groups. Therefore, no study on hydrolysis is performed.
