at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

A measured log Kow value of 5.06±0.007 at 20°C (5.2 at 25°C, extrapolated) was determined for the substance using an acceptable scientific method but not in compliance with GLP. The result is considered to be reliable and selected as key study. This value is supported by a predicted log Kow of 5.2 at 25°C using a validated QSAR estimation method. In secondary sources to which reliability could not be assigned, a log Kow value of 4.2 was reported for the substance.

Log Koa values of 2.74 at 20°C (water saturated octanol) and 2.96 at 23.7°C (dry octanol) were determined in reliable studies conducted according to scientifically sound methods.
