0.009
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

QSAR-disclaimer

In Article 13 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, it is laid down that information on intrinsic properties of substances may be generated by means other than tests, provided that the conditions set out in Annex XI (of the same Regulation) are met. According to Annex XI of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 (Q)SAR results can be used if (1) the scientific validity of the (Q)SAR model has been established, (2) the substance falls within the applicability domain of the (Q)SAR model, (3) the results are adequate for the purpose of classification and labeling and/or risk assessment and (4) adequate and reliable documentation of the applied method is provided.

 

For the assessment of 4,4'-methylenebis(2-methylcyclohexanamine) (CAS 6864 -37 -5, DMDC) (Q)SAR results were used for the estimation of the Henry’s Law constant. The criteria listed in Annex XI of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 are considered to be adequately fulfilled and therefore the endpoint(s) sufficiently covered and suitable for risk assessment.

 

Therefore, further experimental studies on the Henry’s Law Constant are not provided.

 

Assessment

The Henry's Law Constant (HLC) was estimated according to the VP/WS methods. Based on measured data for vapour pressure (0.08 Pa at 20 °C) and water solubility (2010 mg/L at 20 °C) the HLC was estimated to be 9.5E-03 Pa*m³/mol (BASF, 2015). This calculated result was selected as key value. The substance is within the applicability domain of the estimation model.

In conclusion, the substance will not evaporate from the water surface into the atmosphere.
