Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data are available for phototransformation in water. This is not expected to be a significant removal process.

Hexachlorodisilane hydrolyses very rapidly to hexahydroxydisilane and HCl. Therefore, reaction with water vapour, rather than photolysis, is expected to be the primary degradation process in water.
