Description of key information

The main constituents of reaction mass of 2,2'-oxybisbutane (DSBE), DIPE, SBA and 2-methylpropan-2-ol (TBA) do not contain functional groups that are easily hydrolised. Consequently, they are considered as resistant to hydrolysis. Hydrolysis will not contribute to the degradation of the test item in the environment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The main constituents of reaction mass of 2,2'-oxybisbutane (DSBE), DIPE, SBA and 2-methylpropan-2-ol (TBA) do not contain functional groups that are easily hydrolised. Consequently, they are considered as resistant to hydrolysis (1, 2).

Hydrolysis will not contribute to the degradation of the test item in the environment. Further testing is not required in accordance with Annex XI of REACH, section 1.2 and 2.
