Description of key information

Hydrolysis is not expected due to the absence of hydrolysable groups.In addition, the substance is not soluble in water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to Kollig et al. (1993), Boethling & Mackay (2000) and Harris (1990), the substance is generally resistant to hydrolysis because it does not contain any labile functional groups. According to Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 Annex VIII 9.2.2.1 column 2 a study on hydrolysis does not need to be conducted if the substance is highly insoluble in water. The substance is not soluble in water (WS < 0.03 mg/L; BASF SE, 2011, Report no.: 10L00315; see IUCLID Ch. 4.8). Therefore, an experimental investigation of its hydrolytic properties was not considered necessary.
