Description of key information

Additional information

According to Column 2 of REACH Annex IX (section 7.15), the study is only required if stability of the substance is considered to be critical. A study on the stability of a test substance in an organic solvent is normally undertaken in support of those ((eco)toxicological) studies in which the substance is dissolved in an organic solvent. The objective of the stability test being to confirm whether the test substance is stable under the storage conditions for the duration of the storage of the organic solvent or extract containing the test substance. For NMMO these stability determinations are considered to be included in the studies where relevant. It is thus considered not necessary to further determine the stability of NMMO in organic solvents.
