Description of key information

Additional information

It is predicted that the substance will be degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals. The half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be approximately 6.4 hours.

The substance is highly unstable at pH 4, 7 and 9 and 20, 30 and 50°C, respectively, hydrolysing to the diacid. Instability increased as temperature and pH increased. The half life is in the order of minutes.
