Additional information

EDTA is resistant to hydrolysis.

Photolytic degradation is practically only relevant for the Fe(III)EDTA complex and has been shown in surface waters. It is depending on pH and irradiation; in summer photodegradation rates will be higher and mainly when pH is <= 7.

Further abiotic degradation processes as reaction with OH-radicals or single oxygen have (compared to the direct photolysis) very low reaction constants and are of no environmental significance.
