Phototransformation in air.
Half-life for reaction with OH

measured data are available for the submission substance.
AOPWIN program (v1.92, EPA 2010) has been used to obtain values of the
rate constant kOH for reaction of the constituents of
the submission substance and
their hydrolysis products with
hydroxyl radicals. This prediction method has not been validated to
assess applicability to organosilicon substances; therefore, there is
uncertainty associated with the calculated values obtained.
overall half-life in air under default conditions of hydroxyl radical
concentration was calculated using the following expressions:
(d-1) = kOH (cm3/molecule.sec) x
OH Concair (molecules/cm3) x 24 x 3600
(d) = ln 2/ kdegair (d-1)
rate constant for degradation in air
rate constant for reaction with hydroxyl radicals
concentration of hydroxyl radicals in air = 5 E+05 OH molecules/cm3
concentration of hydroxyl radicals in air of 5E+05 OH molecules/cm3,
and the 24 hour photoperiod, are the values specified in ECHA Guidance
on Information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Part R.16
Environmental exposure estimation (ECHA 2016).
The results are given in the
table below for the constituents of the substance.

with hydroxyl radicals in air are available for some organosilanes. A
summary of these measured data is in the table below.
predictions are also presented for comparison with the measured data.

7.2E-13 (Tuazon, 2000)
measured values from Sommerlade et al. (1993) and Atkinson (1991)
are in sufficient agreement and correlate well with the predicted
values. Indeed, the data from these two studies were used in the
training set for the AOPWIN program.
measured values from Tuazon (2000) indicate slightly lower rates of
reaction for the silanols compared to the AOPWIN predictions and the
measured value from Sommerlade et al. (1993).
