Additional information

Kendall (1999) is GLP-compliant with restrictions of characterisation and storage conditions of test substance. The test is non-guideline, with the method developed at Wildlife International, but follows scientific principles. The study is considered suitable for use as key study for this endpoint. A solubility value of 8.86 g/L at 20°C in freshwater was determined for ethanethiol.

The key study is supported by a result of 6.8 g/L at 20°C taken from the WHO IPCS International Chemical Safety Card (ICSC 0470, 2004). No information on the primary source of these data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from an internationally peer-reviewed chemical safety card and can be considered reliable and suitable for use as supporting information for this endpoint.
