Description of key information

Additional information

Data on physical and chemical properties for octane-1 -thiol (CAS 111 -88 -6) has been taken from a number of primary and secondary sources and (Q)SARs. The data in the secondary sources are based on a critical evaluation of peer-reviewed data and the selected values are considered to be reliable and representative of the property under investigation. Information on the review process was documented in the introduction of the source. The use of Klimisch codes (Klimisch et al. 1997) was extended to these secondary sources and a reliability code of (2) valid with restrictions was assigned when using the authoritative secondary source.

Review of the collated information indicates that octane-1 -thiol has a relative density of lower than water. Octane-1-thiol is expected to partition in organic phase based on a log Pow of 4.21. With a Henry's Law Constant of 442 Pa.m3/mol, octane-1 -thiol is expected to volatilise rapidly from water.

The information available indicates that octane-1-thiol would not be classified as explosive, oxidising or flammable.
