Description of key information

Cesium fluoroaluminate is a soluble metal salt consisting of cesium cations and fluoroaluminate anions and thus liberates

cesium cations and fluoroaluminate anions upon dissolution. Fluoroaluminate ions are moderately stable but eventually disintegrate resulting in aluminium cations and fluoride anions that participate in prevalent geochemical speciation processes.

The term ‘Hydrolysis’ refers to the “Decomposition or degradation of a chemical by reaction with water”, and this as a function of pH (i. e., abiotic degradation). Abiotic degradation is not considered to significantly affect the fate of cesium fluoroaluminate in the environment since it does not contain hydrolyzable functional groups.
