Conc. based on:
test mat. (total fraction)
Incubation duration:
72 h

The water solubility of the test item was determined to be 1.01 x 10-3 g/L of solution at 20 deg C.


Executive summary:

The objective of this study was to determine water solubility for the test substance following EC Guideline A.6, OECD Guideline105, EPA OPPTS 830.7840 and GLP principles. The preliminary water solubility test indicated that the column elution method should have been performed as the solubility was less than 1 x 10 -2 g/L. However, due to the physical nature of the test item, it was not possible to use this method as experience has shown that liquid test items coated onto glass beads cause the beads to adhere together forming a plug within the column and thus preventing water circulation. It is stated in ECHA Guidance R.7a that the column elution is not suitable for mobile oils and liquids.

On completion of the equilibration period, the samples were cloudy with excess of test item forming globules. The solutions were decanted, avoiding excess test item prior centrifugation. After centrifugation, the supernatant was taken for analysis. The supernatant was visually observed to be clear /colourless and free from undissolved test item.

The percentage purity of four components observed in the chromatography was calculated using peak area normalization. The standard solution concentrations were corrected for purity to calculate the concentration of each component individually. The water solubility of test item has been calculated as the total item concentration of the four component peaks.
