Description of key information

A hydrolysis study was performed according to OECD Guideline 111. The major constituents of test item ( 2,2'-[[(5-methyl-1H-benzotriazol-1-yl)methyl]imino]bisethanol and 2,2'-[[(4-methyl-1H-benzotriazol-1-yl)methyl]imino]bisethanol hydrolyse directly and quantitatively when it is solved in the buffer solutions. Thus the test item is not considered to be hydrolytically stable at pH 4, 7 and 9. The determination of the hydrolysis rate is not possible because of the very fast hydrolysis. Methyl-1H-benzotriazole (tolyltriazole) was detected as hydrolysis product. Additionally the following transformation products were proposed: Formaldehyde (CAS No. 50-00-0), Diethanolamine (CAS No. 111-42-2)
