Hydrolysis is not relevant a relevant degradation pathway.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental studies investigating the abiotic hydrolysis of Reaction mixture of Glycerol 1,3- di(acetate), glycerol acetate and triacetin are available. However, in accordance with Annex VIII, column 2, 9.2.2.1. of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, testing is not required since the substance is readily biodegradable. In addition, supporting QSAR calculations (HYDROWIN v2.00) for the different components of the composition indicate, that hydrolysis is a negligible pathway for the environmental fate of Reaction mixture of Glycerol 1,3- di(acetate), glycerol acetate and triacetin in the environment (DT50 > 1 yr (pH 7); Müller, 2011).
