Isopropenyl acetate should be protected from humidity, since otherwise hydrolysis to acetone and acetic acid may occur. Storage beyond the recommended period does not necessarily mean that the product is no longer usable. In this case however, the properties required for the intended use must be checked for quality assurance reasons.
