Reference
Endpoint:
water solubility
Type of information:
migrated information: read-across from supporting substance (structural analogue or surrogate)
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
Testing was conducted between 30 September 2009 and 30 October 2009.
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: see 'Remark'
Remarks:
Study conducted in compliance with agreed protocols, with no deviations from standard test guidelines (EU Method A.6). The substance tested is a hydrated form of the substance to be registered and therefore in accordance with 'Data Submission Manual, Part 18 - How to report substance identity in IUCLID 5 for registration under REACH' the hydrated form is considered to be different to the anhydrous form. Read-across from trimagnesium phosphate-4-hydrate to the anhydrous trimagnesium bis(orthophosphate) is justified on the basis that the addition of water is unlikely to detrimentally affect the physicochemical or (eco)toxicological profile of the substance. The reliability has been amended in accordance with 'practical guide 6: How to report read-across and categories' which states that the maximum reliability for a read-across study is 2. The study is considered to be adequate and reliable for the purpose of registration under REACH (Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006).
Qualifier:
according to guideline

Type of method:
flask method
Remarks:
The determination was carried out using the flask method, Method A6 Water Solubility of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

Validation

The linearity of the detector response with respect to concentration was assessed over the nominal concentration range of 0 to 100 mg/l*. This was satisfactory with a correlation coefficient of 1.000 being obtained.

Conclusions:
Interpretation of results (migrated information): slightly soluble (0.1-100 mg/L)
The water solubility of the test material has been determined to be in the range 4.18 x 10-2 to 4.89 x 10-2 g/l of solution at 20.0 ± 0.5°C, using the flask method, Method A6 Water Solubility of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008.

The effect of temperature over the range 10 to 30°C has been considered not to have had a significant influence on the solubility of the test material (range 3.72 x 10-2 to 4.89 x 10-2 g/l).

An assessment of the solubility of the test material over the environmentally relevant pH range of 4 to 9 gave similar solubility results at a solution pH in the range 8.2 to 9.1; however, at a solution pH of 7.2, the water solubility of the test material was much higher. Thus, the effect of pH has been considered to have had a significant effect on the solubility of the test material.

Description of key information

The water solubility of trimagnesium bis(orthophosphate) was determined according to EU Method A.6 (Water solubility) and under the conditions of GLP. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
0.048 g/L
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

The water solubility of the trimagnesium bis(orthophosphate) has been determined to be in the range 4.18 x 10-2 to 4.89 x 10-2 g/l of solution at 20.0 ± 0.5°C, using the flask method, Method A6 Water Solubility of Commission Regulation (EC) No 440/2008 of 30 May 2008. The highest recorded solubility has been chosen as the key value for the chemical safety assessment.

The effect of temperature over the range 10 to 30°C has been considered not to have had a significant influence on the solubility of the test material (range 3.72 x 10-2 to 4.89 x 10-2 g/l).

An assessment of the solubility of the test material over the environmentally relevant pH range of 4 to 9 gave similar solubility results at a solution pH in the range 8.2 to 9.1; however, at a solution pH of 7.2, the water solubility of the test material was much higher. Thus, the effect of pH has been considered to have had a significant effect on the solubility of the test material.
