Additional information

A number of values are available for the boiling point of one of the main components of this UVCB substance, 2-(2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethanol, indicating a boiling point of around 256C. A reliable QSAR predicts the boiling point to be 258C, suggesting that the model is accurate for this type of compound. The same QSAR predicts the boiling point of the other main component, 3,6,9,12-tetraoxatetradecan-1-ol would be around 306C. On the justified assumption that the boiling point is likely to be dominated by the main component with the lowest boiling point, the value for 2-(2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethanol is selected as the key parameter for this end point.
