Description of key information

Both p- and m-divinylbenzene are stable at 25° and 49-51°C and at pH 4, 7 and 9 in water over 5 days. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The components of DVB-HP, -63, and -55 (divinylbenzene and ethylvinylbenzne) do not possess structural groups which are susceptible to hydrolysis under pH/temperature conditions occurring in the environment. This was shown experimentally, where the components of a mixture of p- and m- DVB were stable at pH 4, 7, and 9 at 50 °C over 5 days.
