Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

dissociation constant
Data waiving:
study scientifically not necessary / other information available
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is hydrolytically unstable (half-life less than 12 hours)

Description of key information

Dissociation constant (di-amine group): pKa1 = 7.2, pKa2 = ca. 10 (Estimation)


Dissociation constant [N-(3-(trihydroxysilyl)propyl)ethylenediamine, silanetriol group]: ca. 10

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The requirement to conduct a dissociation constant study for the submission substance is waived because in contact with water the substance hydrolyses very rapidly. The hydrolysis products in this case are N-[3-(trihydroxysilyl)propyl]ethylenediamine and methanol.


There are no reliable measured data for the dissociation constant of N-[3-(trihydroxysilyl)propyl]ethylenediamine. The typical dissociation constants for the hydroxyl protons of silanetriols are available from studies in other silanetriols. It is appropriate to read-across dissociation constant data for the silanol hydrolysis product; N-[3-(trihydroxysilyl)propyl]ethylenediamine from phenylsilanetriol. This suggests that silanols are not expected to undergo significant dissociation within the range of pH relevant in the environment or in vivo. Phenylsilanetriol has a measured first dissociation constant ca.10 in a reliable study using a relevant test method. Additional information is given in a supporting report (PFA 2013b) attached in Section 13.


The dissociation constant of the two amine groups have been calculated using an appropriate predictive method to be pKa1 = 7.2 and pKa2 = ca. 10. Based on the different pKa values for the two different amine groups present in the diamine, at environmentally relevant pH range the diamine group will exist in a mixture of singly and doubly protonated species.
