Description of key information

Due to its chemical structure, monoisopropylnaphthalene (MIPN) cannot be hydrolysed.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

MIPN consists of an aromatic naphthalene nucleus substituted with one isopropyl group and is chemically quite unreactive. It does not contain any functional group that could be hydrolysed. Thus it is impossible to demonstrate any hydrolysis of MIPN in a hydrolysis study.
