Description of key information

Water solubility of DVB-55 = 44 mg/l at 25°C 
Water solubility of DVB-HP = 36 mg/l at 20°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
36 mg/L
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

Reported measured water solubility values range from 36-52 mg/L for different grades of the reaction mass of divinylbenzene and ethylstyrene. Reported but undocumented values for positional isomers of DVB are 8.2 and 20 mg/L. Measurement of water solubility of these substances can be influenced by volatiliy, and must be considered as "suspect" unless available documentation describes methodology which is suitable for testing of volatile substances. The documented Key Study for DVB-HP, giving a value of 36 mg/L, is considered to be a reliable determination of the water solubity of the reaction mass.
