Description of key information

The substance hydrolyses rapidly to silanetriol. Silanetriol is inorganic, therefore in accordance with column 2 of REACH annex VII, the readily biodegradation study does not need to be conducted. The other hydrolysis product is ethanol, which is known to biodegrade rapidly. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment
