Description of key information

Etherdiamine is completely biodegradable and does not contain hydrolysable covalent bonds. Cleavage of a carbon-nitrogen bond under environmental conditions is only possible with a carbonyl group adjacent to the nitrogen atom. Degradation of etherdiamine through hydrolysis is therefore not considered.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life for hydrolysis:
15 yr
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

N-[3-(tridecyloxy)propyl]-1,3-propane diamine,branched monoacetate and N-[3-(tridecyloxy)propyl]-1,3-propane diaminebrancheddo not contain hydrolysable covalent bonds. Cleavage of a carbon-nitrogen bond under environmental conditions is only possible with a carbonyl group adjacent to the nitrogen atom. Degradation ofN-[3-(tridecyloxy)propyl]-1,3-propane diamine,branched monoacetate and N-[3-(tridecyloxy)propyl]-1,3-propane diaminebranched through hydrolysis is therefore not considered.
