Additional information

Exploring QSAR , Hydrophobic, Electric, and Steric Constants by Hansch et al (1995) is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint. The supporting study (WHO ICSC 1994) is also a peer reviewed source and reports a value of 3.4 (temperature not reported) and supports the value reported in the key study.
