Description of key information

Estimated hydrolysis half-lives for methyl 5-nitrohydrogen.isophthalate of 10.325 and 1.032 days are reported at pH 7 and 8 respectively.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life for hydrolysis:
10.325 d
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

Since methyl 5-nitrohydrogen.isophthalate has been shown to be readily biodegradable (Point 5.2.1), a study of its hydrolysis is not required. Under environmental conditions, hydrolysis is unlikely to make a significant contribution to the dissipation of methyl 5-nitrohydrogen.isophthalate compared to the rate of its removal by biodegradation.
