Hi Nancy,

I don't know too much about sufinamides but expect that they, like
carboxamides, are relatively stable derivatives of sulfinic acids.  I
expect it will depend a lot on what you plan to do with it, though.
You can always create a solution and see if it decomposes over
whatever time frame you are considering for its usage.
