Description of key information

Dissociation constant [dichloro(dimethyl)silane]: Not Relevant

Dissociation constant (dimethylsilanediol): ca. 12.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The requirement to test the substance for dissociation constant is waived because in contact with water the substance hydrolyses very rapidly. The hydrolysis products in this case are dimethylsilanediol and hydrochloric acid. There are no reliable measured data for the dissociation constant of dimethylsilanediol. This suggests that silanols are not expected to undergo significant dissociation within the range of pH relevant in the environment or in vivo. Dimethylsilanediol is reported in a secondary source to have a first dissociation constant of 11.9. Additional information is given in a supporting report (PFA 2013b) attached in Section 13 of the REACH technical dossier.
