2-phenoxyethanol can be considered as hydrolytically stable with a half-life of >1 year (BASF AG, 2002). Direct photolysis of 2-phenoxyethanol can be considered as negligible in surface water systems (The Dow Chemical Company, 2006). In air, it was calculated to degrade to 50% after 11.8 hours (BASF 2007).
