Specific details on test material used for the study:
- Name of test material (as cited in study report): Tetrabenzylthiuram disulfide
- Substance type: Monoconstituent substance
- Physical state: Solid
- Storage condition of test material: At room temperature in the dark
- Lot/batch No.: RB82 + RB87 + RB88 + RB92 + RB69
Analytical method:
high-performance liquid chromatography
Key result
log Pow
Partition coefficient:
ca. 3.7
20 °C
Remarks on result:
other: Second log Pow = 3.4 relates probably to a decomposition product
The determination of log Pow by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) results in two log Pow
Executive summary:

The log Pow of the substance was interpolated from this regression line which was obtained from nine reference substances. Two partition coefficients (noctanol/water) were associated with the test substance and determined to be 2.5 * 10E3 (log Pow = 3.4) and 5.0 * 10E3 (log Pow = 3.7) at 20.0 ± 0.50 C. The lower value represents probably a decomposition product, the higher the test substance.

Description of key information

The test substance is not stable in water. With a High Performance Liquid Chromatographic method two partition coefficients (n-octanol/water) were determined to be 2.5* 10E3 (log P = 3.4) and 5.0 * 10E3 (log P =3.7) at 20.0 ± 0.50 C.

Additional information

The pattern of a chromatogram of the test substance showed two different peaks, probably one derived from the test substance and one from decomposition product(s). The higher of the two log P values was associated with the original substance.
