Description of key information

In contact with water 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate will hydrolyse slowly. Half-life at pH 7 and 25°C was 93.0 h

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life for hydrolysis:
93 h
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

In a hydrolysis study conducted by BASF SE (2015), the half-life of 2 -Propenoic acid, 2 -(diethylamino)ethyl ester in water at pH 7 was determined to be approximately 93 h. At higher pH values hydrolysis was even more rapid (t1/2 at pH 9 = 2.2 h). Therefore, the substance will hydrolyse slowly in contact with water under environmental conditions.
