Description of key information

The estimated half-life at 50 °C was < 10 minutes, respectively.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A study on the hydrolysis of 2 -isocyanatoethyl methacrylate was conducted by Shibuya (2011) according to OECD-guideline 111 in accordance with GLP requirements. In the test the hydrolysis of the test substance was investigated under different conditions. The resulting dissipation half-lives of the parent compound were below 10 minutes at pH 4, 7 and 9.

In a further supporting study, conducted by Weber (2012) the hydrolysis products of 2 -isocyanatoethyl methacrylate were identified as 2-aminoethyl methacrylate (CAS 7659 -36 -1) and N,N'-[2-(2-Methyl-2-propenoic acid) ethyl ester] urea (CAS 86219 -64 -9).
