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

Hydrolysis half-life (silazane group): Extremely rapid hydrolysis at 25°C (measured)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The silazane group is expected to hydrolyse very rapidly (instantaneously) in contact with water. This assumption is supported by a preliminary hydrolysis study conducted on the submission substance prior to the ready biodegradation study (Taruki 2014) using a method that is equivalent to a preliminary hydrolysis study according to OECD 111.

During the study, water was spiked with a known amount of the test substance and duplicate test solutions were prepared. The dilute test solutions were analysed using GC-FID; each sample was shaken, sampled and analysis was performed. Sampling of the test substance was performed at various time intervals of 0 hours (immediately after sample preparation), 0.5 hours, 1 hour and 1.5 hours. Sample analysis was performed immediately after preparation using GC-FID.

At t = 0 hours (immediately after sample preparation), t = 0.5 hours, t = 1 hour and t = 1.5 hours solutions, in the chromatograms of the sample solution taken, there were no peaks observed at the characteristic retention time of the test substance. No information on pH was stated; the test temperature is 25°C. The result indicates that the test substance undergoes very rapid hydrolysis when in contact with water. The study is considered to be reliable.


The hydrolysis products are tert-butyldimethylsilanol and piperazine.
