When Water Meets Diisocyanates: A Hydrolysis Story

Because diisocyanates are highly reactive chemicals, you might wonder how they behave in the environment. Diisocyanates react rapidly with water in a process called hydrolysis. Learn more about what happens during the diisocyanate hydrolysis reaction for these incredible chemical building blocks for many of the products we use every day.
