Description of key information

The QSAR determination of the carbon partition coefficient for the substance revealed values of 2.56E+005 L/kg (logKow method) and 3.44E+007 L/kg (MCI method). The results relate to the unaffected molecule of the substance as any decomposition (e.g. hydrolysis) of the substance is not taken into account by the program (Ranz, 2012a). However, this value has no scientific meaning due to the reactivity of the substance with water (interstitial pore water).

Additional information

Determination of adsorption / desorption properties of the substance following the OECD TG 121 is technically not feasible based on the substance properties. The experimental method described in this Test Guideline uses HPLC for the estimation of the adsorption coefficient Koc. With a very low water solubility of < 0.1 mg/l, the substance is difficult to study. Due to the aqueous part of the mobile phase recommended for the HPLC analysis according to OECD TG 121, it cannot be excluded, that the substance precipitate on the HPLC column. Therefore the adsorption coefficient of the substance was estimated using the Estimation Program Interface (EPI) Suite v 4.1 with its program KOCWIN.

It is assumed that equilibrium partitioning to soil and associated organic matter is an irrelevant fate mechanism. As the substance will rapidly react with associated pore water, adsorbed water, and organic matter associated with soil particles, no accumulation is expected in soil. Because of this reactivity, the migration of the substance through soil is not possible, and the substance cannot occur as a contaminant in groundwater. A Koc value of 3.44E+07 L/kg can be estimated with the Molecular Connectivity Index of the Estimation Program Interface Suite (v.4.00, 2009) for the substance. Using the logKow method, a Koc value of 2.56E+05 L/kg can be obtained. However, this value has no scientific meaning due to the reactivity of the substance with water (interstitial pore water).
