Octenyl succinic anhydride was stable in organic solvents, specifically hexane and acetone.

Octenyl succinic anhydride (OSA) was determined to be soluble and stable in organic solvents (hexane, acetone) during a time-course experiment on hydrolyis in water.

Description of key information

OSA is soluble and stable in acetone and hexane.

Additional information

Quantitative analytical determination of octenyl succinic anhydride was developed and the material was found to be stable in hexane and acetone.
