Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Type of information:
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
results derived from a valid (Q)SAR model and falling into its applicability domain, with adequate and reliable documentation / justification
Justification for type of information:
See attached QMRF/QPRF
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The result was obtained using an appropriate QSAR method (see attached QMRF and QPRF for details).

The model is an adaptation of the existing SRC model MPBPVPWIN v 1.43, which is a component of the EPI Suite. This existing model is based on fragment values. That is, the chemical structure is broken down into its constituent functional groups, and the contribution of each group toward the overall boiling point is calculated. Certain correction factors may also apply. Whilst this method is good in principle, the model was developed using a wide range of organic chemicals and only a few organosilicon compounds. Therefore, a validation procedure was undertaken to assess the applicability of the model to trialkoxysilane compounds. It was noted that the MBBPVPWIN model gave a systematic error; therefore, the current model was developed to correct this. The current model is a linear regression based QSAR, with the boiling point prediction from MPBPVPWIN as the descriptor. The adapted model applies to trialkoxysilanes.

Key result
Boiling pt.:
210 °C
Atm. press.:
1 013 hPa
Remarks on result:
other: The predicted result of 205°C was reported to two significant figures
A boiling point value of 210°C at 1013 hPa was obtained using an accepted calculation method. The result is considered to be reliable.

Description of key information

Boiling point: 210°C at 1013 hPa(QSAR)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Boiling point at 101 325 Pa:
210 °C

Additional information

A predicted boiling point of 210°C at 1013 hPa was determined for the registered substance using an appropriate validated QSAR estimation method. The result is considered reliable and selected as key study.

In a secondary source to which reliability could not be assigned, boiling point of 213°C was reported for the substance.
