Description of key information

Additional information

The substance hydrolyses to (3-{[3-(trihydroxysilyl)propyl]disulfanyl}propyl)silanetriol and ethanol with a hydrolysis half-life of greater than 48 hours. Therefore, the environmental hazard assessment is based on the properties of the parent substance in accordance with REACH guidance for Chemical Safety Assessment (Chapter R16).

(3-{[3-(Trihydroxysilyl) propyl]disulfanyl}propyl)silanetriol is the expected final product of hydrolysis reactions under conditions of a hydrolysis laboratory study. However, other biotic or abiotic reactions may proceed over longer time-scales in the environment.
