Description of key information

MTF was determined to be hydrolytically stable under acidic, neutral and basic conditions.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

A study was performed to determine the rate of hydrolysis of MTF as a function of pH. The test was conducted in accordance with the preliminary test as described in Commission Regulation (EC) No. 440/2008 (Method C.7) and the OECD Guidelines for Testing of Chemicals (Method 111).

The preliminary study showed that at each of pH 4, 7 and 9 and 50 +/- 0.5ºC, less than 10% hydrolysis had occurred after 5 days, equivalent to a half-life of greater than 1 year under environmental conditions (25°C). No further testing was considered necessary. MTF was determined to be hydrolytically stable under acidic, neutral and basic conditions.
