Conclusions:
The water solubility of DIMETHYL 2-METHYL GLUTARATE at 20 °C was determined to be 25.2 g/L (standard deviation ± 0.2 g/L) using the flask shaking method.
Executive summary:

The determination of the water solubility of DIMETHYL 2-METHYL was performed according to the EEC Directive 92/69, A.6 ”Water Solubility” (1992) and the OECD guideline No. 105, ”Water Solubility” (1995) using the flask shaking method.

 

The saturation concentration of DIMETHYL 2-METHYL GLUTARATE at room temperature was estimated by a simplified flask method in the preliminary test to be higher than 10-2g/L. Therefore, the flask shaking test was used for the performance of the main test.

 

Vessels containing water and test item were shaken for 24 hours, 48 hours and 72 hours, respectively, at 30 °C. Afterwards the samples were equilibrated for another 24 hours at 20.0 °C. After dilution with acetonitrile the concentrations in the aqueous solutions were determined by a GC-method.

 

The water solubility of DIMETHYL 2-METHYL GLUTARATE at 20 °C was determined to be 25.2 g/L (standard deviation ± 0.2 g/L) using the flask shaking method.
