Hexylene glycol photostability has been investigated by Magneron et al.
in 2003 under different conditions (artificial and natural light). The
results are the following:
- Phototransformation in air: k = (1.5 +/- 0.4) x 10 -11 cm3 molecule-1
s-1 (sensitizer: OH radical).
- Transformation products: diacetone alcohol, acetone, and peroxyacetyl
- Estimated photochemical ozone creation potential (POCP) reported to be
47 (ethylene = 100).
- Tropospheric lifetime estimated to be 20 hours.
- Expected to be oxidised at the local or regional scale.
Otherwise based on the ready biodegradation test results which confirm
that hexylene glycol is readily biodegradable, the hydrolysis test has
