pKa Values
No pKa values for acidic and basic groups in the molecular structure of the test item in the logarithm range of 1 – 14 were calculated.

Koc HPLC Method
In the chromatogram of the test solution, one major peak and two small test item peaks were observed. The equation of the regression line was: log k’ = 0.327 x log Koc – 0.803 (r = 0.98, n = 16).
Validity criteria fulfilled:
The HPLC method using soil-adsorption-reference data was applied for the determination of the adsorption coefficient (Koc) of 5-Bromo-5-nitro-1,3-dioxane. The Koc and log Koc values of the test item at pH 7 were:

Koc log Koc Peak Area %
Test item - peak 1 1.9 x 10 e1 1.28 96
Test item - peak 2 1.6 x 10 e4 4.21 1.8
Test item - peak 3 2.0 x 10 e4 4.30 1.8
Executive summary:

Information: Adsorption coefficient

Guideline: EC C.19 OECD 121

Result:     log Koc : 1.28 (area 96%)

log Koc : 4.21 (area 1.8%)

log Koc : 4.30 (area 1.8%)

HPLC method based on soil-adsorptionreference data

Description of key information

The HPLC method using soil-adsorption-reference data was applied for the determination of the adsorption coefficient (Koc) of the test substance. The Koc value of the main species identified in the test item (96% peak area) at pH 7 was 19.
