The substance as well as the decomposition products melamine and cyanuric acid are hydrolytically stable in the aqueous environment.
The substance has not been tested as a
study is scientifically not justified.
The substance is a high molecular
weight complex, self-assembled via organized network of hydrogen bonds
and aromatic ring stacking. The molecules of melamine and cyanuric acid
are strongly bound in the crystal lattice and require considerable
energy to remove them. The absence of a melting point, the high
decomposition temperature and the poor solubility in any solvent is a
consequence of this complexation behaviour. The substance is only
defined through the solid state. In such a case, water solubility is the
composition of the aqueous solution formed at equilibrium under a
defined set of conditions. Due to the measurement of solubility, the
composition consists of dissolved melamine and dissolved cyanuric acid.
Thus, under environmental conditions and at predicted concentrations in
the aqueous environment, the substance is expected to dissociate into
the two components melamine and cyanuric acid. Therefore read-across it
is justified from the supporting substances melamine or cyanuric acid.
For the component 108-80-5 (cyanuric
The substance is hydrolytically stable.
For the component 108 -78 -1(melamine):
Melamine is hydrolyzed by mineral acid
or inorganic alkali. Hydrolysis proceeds stepwise, with loss of one,
two, or all three amino groups, i.e. producing ammeline, ammelide and
cyanuric acid. The product spectrum varies with temperature, pH, and
concentration; the final product is cyanuric acid [108-80-5]. However,
there is no indication that the substance hydrolyses under conditions
defined by testing guidelines.
