Additional information

The QSAR calculated rate constant for the OH sensitized photodegradation of N,N,N',N'-tetrakis-2-hydroxyethyl)hexanediamide is approximately 7.62E-11 cm³/(molecule * s). At 500,000 OH radicals / cm³ (approximate 24-hour mean in central Europe) this corresponds to a half-life of 5.1 hours. Hydrolytical degradation in surface waters is expected to be relevant only in basic environments with a half-life of 174 days at pH 9 and 25 °C.
