Hydrolysis: FORMAMIDOPROPYLBETAINE is hydrolytically stable (half-life time at 25°C> 1 year) in aqueous solutions buffered at pH 4, pH 7 and pH 9.

FORMAMIDOPROPYLBETAINE was not readily biodegradable under the conditions of the modified Sturm test presently performed. The test substance demonstrated potential for inherent biodegradation with biodegradation values of 31 % and 39 %.

The adsorption coefficient (Koc) of FORMAMIDOPROPYLBETAINE at neutral pH and 35.0 ± 1.0°C was < 2.1 x 10 (log Koc < 1.3).
