Phototransformation in air

Using EPISuite software SRC AOP v1.92 the phototransformation in air was calculated to be 2.758 h (half-life in air). After evaporation or exposure to the air the substance will be rapidly degraded by photochemical processes.


According to Annex VII - Column 2 escape clause, the hydrolysis study does not need to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. N-Butyl vinyl ether is considered as readily biodegradable. Consequently, no test on hydrolysis is performed.
