Additional information

Hydrolysis:

Parent compound: In contact with water, the substance will hydrolyse rapidly. This estimation refers to dry air. In mist, rain, droplets and aerosols, hydrolysis will be the major fate process of the chloroformate due to the short half-life in aqueous solution. Therefore this estimate may be of low relevance.

Hydrolysis product methanol CAS 67-56-1: According to structural properties, hydrolysis is not probable.

Phototransformation in air:

After evaporation or exposure to air, the substance and its hydrolysis product will be slowly degraded by photochemical processes.
