Description of key information

The water solubility of pentadecan-1-ol is 0.102 mg/L at ambient temperature. This may reliably be read across to pentadecanol, branched and linear.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The solubility of 0.102 mg/L was taken from a reliable and definitive reference source for solubility data (Yalkowsky and Valvani, 1980).

It is supported by consistent solubility from two other reliable published sources. A water solubility value of 74 µg/L was determined for a close structural analogue of pentadecanol, branched and linear in a reliable study conducted according to generally accepted scientific principles.
