Additional information

Dimethoxydimethylsilane (CAS No. 1112-39-6) hydrolyses rapidly to dimethylsilanediol and methanol under environmental conditions (DT50 < 0.6 h at pH 7, pH 9 and 25 °C). Thus, the hydrolysis products rather than the parent substance are expected to be present in the environment after environmental release.

Direct photolysis is unlikely to be relevant for both hydrolysis products as they contain no chromophores that would absorb visible or UV radiation.
