The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

A measured pKa value of 4.1 is available for C12-14 AO. AOs are weak bases, showing either non-ionic or cationic behaviour in aqueous solution depending on pH. In acid solution, the cationic form [R(CH3)2N+-OH] is observed while in neutral and alkaline solution the non-ionic form predominates as the hydrate [R(CH3)2NO.H2O].

Due to the low vapour pressure (1.7E-06 - 7.5E-05 Pa) and the low Henry’s law constant (3.7E-09 - 1.2E-08 Pa.m3/mol) , atmospheric exposure will be low. The measured Koc of 1525 L/kg indicates that the substance will adsorb to soil and to suspended solids and sediment in water.

A Mackay Level III fugacity model predicts that simultaneous release of the substance to air, soil and water compartments results in distribution to soil (83.1 %) water (16.1 %) and sediment (0.8 %).
