Default Stability of EDTA?



EDTA is soluble in alkaline condition.
Since we use a lot, we make lots of EDTA solution in NaOH and store them in
the refrigerator.
I am wondering how long EDTA could be stable under alkaline pH. I thought
that EDTA could be hydrolyzed during a long term storage even at 4oC.
Please advise me. Satoshi

Default Stability of EDTA?

In our molecular biology work, we common store 0.5 M EDTA pH 8.0 at room
temp (after autoclaving) for months without any apparent problems.
