Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Hydrolysis of GMT is dependent on the pH with half-lives of > 1 year at pH 4 (25 °C), 223 h at pH 7 (25 °C) and 17 h at pH 9 (25 °C).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

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

Additional information

The half-life of GMT in water decreases under neutral (pH 7) and alkaline (pH 9) conditions with half-lives of 223 h (pH 7) and 17 h (pH 9) at 25 °C. At pH = 4.0 GMT can be considered as a hydrolytically stable compound and its t1/2 at 25°C was considered to be greater than 1 year. The degradation products were not completely measured but glycerol was identified to be one of the major degradation product of the hydrolysis.
