Description of key information

No photodegradation of sodium percarbonate in water is expected due to the rapid dissociation of the substance into sodium carbonated and hydrogen peroxide.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The following text was copied from the OECD SIDS of sodium percarbonate (OECD 2006), section 2.2.2:

"Photodegradation in water is also not applicable because sodium percarbonate rapidly dissolves in water and dissociates into sodium ions, carbonate ions and hydrogen peroxide."
