Description of key information

epsilon-Caprolactam is not considered to hydrolyze rapidly when released to water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The half-life of epsilon-Caprolactam in water of > 1 year was calculated with HYDROWIN v1.67. According to HSDB (2008), hydrolysis is not expected to be an important environmental fate process due to its slow hydrolysis rate.
