Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Description of key information

Group Method approach by EPIWIN: 1.84 Pa*m³/mol at 25 °C (Chemservice S.A., 2010).
pH corrected values were calculated according to ECHA Guidance R.7a: 3.43 E-7 Pa*m³/mol (pH4), 3.43 E-6 Pa*m³/mol (pH 5), 3.43 E-4 Pa*m³/mol (pH 7) and 3.36 E-2 Pa*m³/mol (pH 9) (BASF SE, 2012)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Henry's law constant (H) (in Pa m³/mol):
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

No experimental data concerning the Henry´s Law constant is available for dimethylamine. Therefore, the distribution of the substance between aqueous solutions and air was determined by calculation. For this purpose the computer program from US-EPA (EPIWIN, software HENRYWINv3.20) was used. Using the Bond method a constant of 1.69 Pa*m³/mol was calculated. The Group method gives a result of 1.84 Pa*m³/mol and is taken as key value for the chemical safety assessment. Both values are calculated for an ambient temperature of 25 °C.

The calculated values are representative for the uncharged molecule. At environmental conditions the molecule is expected to be ionised, therefore a pH-corrected HLC was calculated according to the REACH Guidance document (2008). The resulting Henry´s Law constant was 3.43 E-4 Pa*m³/mol at pH 7 (BASF, 2012). Based on the pH-corrected HLC, the substance will not evaporate from the water surface into the atmosphere.
