Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Additional information

The distribution in a sewage treatment plant (STP) has been estimated using the SimpleTreat model (implemented in EUSES 2.1.2), see table below. Due to the rapid hydrolysis of the parent substance, the distribution calculation is done for the silanol hydrolysis product

Table: Distribution modelling for STP

Fraction of emission directed to water by STP



Fraction of emission directed to air by STP



Fraction of emission directed to sludge by STP



Fraction of the emission degraded in STP



3-(Trimethoxysilyl)propiononitrile hydrolyses rapidly in contact with water to form 3-(trihydroxysilyl)propiononitrile and methanol. 3-(Trihydroxysilyl)propiononitrile is not expected to undergo any significant biodegradation, has low Henry’s Law constant and low log Kow/log Koc. Therefore, water is the main compartment to which it is expected to partition in a sewage treatment plant.
