Description of key information

The surface tension of  Alcohols, C14-15 is not quantified. A value in the range ca. 30 mN/m to ca. 66.5 mN/m at ca. 90% saturated aqueous solution is estimated by read-across from undecan-1-ol and (Z)-octadec-9-enol. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There is no information available for C14 -15 Alcohols; predominantly linear, so key studies were chosen from studies on closely related linear or branched alcohols of similar chain length.

A preliminary assessment by calculated Hydrophilic Lipophilic Balance suggests that no surface tension lowering property would be expected on the basis of structure alone.
