Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Partition Coefficient estimation:
Log P = (log (Octanol solubility/Water solubility)

The highest octanol solubility test (89.8%, i.e. 898000 mg/l), the water solubility value is 1 mg/l.

log P = log (898000/1) = 5.95

Octanol solubility results:

 Test [%]  Weight of sample [g]  Weight of octanol [%]  Total weight [g]  w/w [g]
 10  0.1026  0.8994  1.0020  10.2
 20  0.2125  0.7914  1.0039  21.2
 30  0.3015  0.6946  0.9961  30.3
 40  0.4001  0.6037  1.0038  39.9
 50  0.4001  0.6037  1.0016  49.9
 60  0.6005  0.3996  1.0001  60
 70  0.6993  0.2986  0.9979  70.1
 80  0.7983  0.1974  0.9957  80.2
 90  0.9017  0.1027  1.0044  89.8

No signs of phase separation or precipitation were present in any test; therefore the test substance was miscible in all proportions in 1 -octanol.

Executive summary:

Hydrocarbons, C12-C16, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, alkenes is measured according to OECD 107.

The log POW was determind to be 5.95.
