Description of key information

The octanol-water partition coefficients of constituents of Alcohols, C7-9-linear and branched are in the range 2.3-4.2.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The partition coefficients were determined in a reliable study.

Partition coefficient for a multi-constituent or UVCB substance is not meaningful scientifically for the purpose of assessment of exposure or risk. Exposure and risk are assessed on the basis of the individual constituents, as discussed in the CSR.

In some cases the CAS and chemical identity stated refer to SDA nomenclature for this substance. in REACH substance identification it is necessary to be more specific as to the chain lengths present. Full details may be

found in the CSR.
