Description of key information

Resorcinol has no functional groups susceptible to hydrolysis under environmentally relevant pH and temperature conditions (Harris, 1990); hydrolysis is not expected to occur.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

Resorcinol has no functional groups susceptible to hydrolysis under environmentally relevant pH and temperature conditions (Harris, 1990); hydrolysis is not expected to occur.

HYDROWIN v 1.67 cannot estimate hydrolysis rate constants for phenols.  Therefore modelled results using HYDROWIN v 1.67 have not been provided (US EPA, 2006, EPISUITE v3.12).

Resorcinol has been shown to be readily biodegradable and hence in accordance with REACH Annex VIII section 9.2.2.1 a hydrolysis study need not be performed.
