Description of key information

As the registered substance is readily biodegradable, a GLP hydrolysis study does not need to be conducted, in accordance with REACH Annex VIII column 2. However, a non-GLP stability test was performed on the registered substance with a method similar to OECD Guideline No. 111, in accelerated conditions at 40 °C during 28 days. The test subsance is stable up to 28 days at neutral and basic pH (from 7 to 12). At pH 5 at 40°C, the decrease after 28 days is steady to reach ca. 75% decrease. On the contrary, at pH 2, there is immediate and almost total disappearance of the test substance. Therefore, it can be concluded that under the conditions of the present test, the registered substance is hydrolytically stable at pH neutral, but unstable to very unstable at pH 5 and 2.
