25 °C

Additional information

The determination of the hydrolysis rate of FORMAMIDOPROPYLBETAINE as a function of pH was based on the EEC-Directive 92/69 EEC, Part C, Methods for the determination of Ecotoxicity, C.7: "Abiotic degradation: Hydrolysis as a function of pH", EEC Publication no. L383, December 1992.

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