CALCULATION METHODS
PRINCIPLE
Several techniques are available to determine the vapour pressure of a test item experimentally. These techniques are described in EEC guideline A.4 and in the OECD guideline 104.
If the vapour pressure of Tosylfuranosid is expected to be so small that the value is below the measurement range of an experimental determination (e.g. the gas saturation method), then the vapour pressure can also be calculated, using the Modified Watson Correlation. This method is described by Lyman et al. (1990).
This method calculates the vapour pressure from the boiling point of the test item.
CALCULATION OF THE BOILING POINT
The boiling point of Tosylfuranosid is necessary for the calculation of the vapour pressure and was calculated using the Meissner’s method (Lyman et al., 1990).
This calculation is based on the relation ship of the boiling points (at atmospheric pressure) with chemical type; molar refraction (Rd) and parachor (Pa) are used as variables in the following correlation:
Tb = 637x(Rd)1.47+B/Pa
Where:
Tb = Boiling point [K]
Rd = Molar refraction
Pa = Parachor
B = Constant factor, depending upon the chemical type
The molar refraction and parachor values were computed according to Eisenlohr (Lyman et al., 1990) and Sugden (Lyman et al., 1990), respectively, by summing the contributions for each atom or substructure and multiple bond in the compound.

CALCULATION OF THE VAPOUR PRESSURE
Using the calculated boiling point of Tosylfuranosid, the vapour pressure was calculated using the Modified Watson Correlation:
With: Hvb/Tb = Kf · (8.75 + R · InTb)
Where:
Pvp = Vapour pressure [atmospheres]
Hvb = Heat of vaporisation at the boiling point [cal/mol]
Zb = Compressibility factor (= 0.97)
R = Gas constant [1.987 cal/mol/K]
Tb = Boiling point of Tosylfuranosid = 652.2 K
Tbp = T/Tb
T = Temperature at which the vapour pressure is to be calculated [K] = 298 K
m = Empirical factor depending on the physical state at T and depending on Tbp (here 1.19)
Kf = Empirical factor considering the polarity of the test item (1.06)
The factors for the calculations described above were selected from the literature.
