Trimethyl borate rapidly hydrolyzes in water with a half-life of less than 1 second (0.02 minutes). The hydrolysis products formed are methanol and boric acid. Methanol is readily biodegradable while boric acid is an inorganic compound to which biodegradation is not applicable. These products have a low potential for bioaccumulation.
