Description of key information

According to structural properties, hydrolysis is not expected/probable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

DMCHA is readily biodegradable (90-100% DOC removal after 18d ; BASF AG, 2004, Rep. no.: 21G0049/043019; see IUCLID Ch. 5.2.1). Further, at environmental pH conditions hydrolysis is not expected to be a relevant degradation process due to the absence of hydrolysable groups (Kollig et al, 1993, Boethling and Mackay 2000). Therefore, a study on hydrolysis is not performed.
