The results of the dissociation constants of the test item in water are given in the tables reported below. The mean dissociation constants of the test item in water for replications R1, R2 and R3 were determined to be 4.61 ± 0.53, 4.69 ± 0.59 and 4.66 ± 0.60, respectively, with an overall mean of 4.65 ± 0.04.

The maximum and minimum temperature during the experimental period was 20.2 and 19.8 °C, respectively.

Verification of Spectrophotometer Performance

On all occasions of use, the instrument passed all internal calibration checks.

 

Preliminary test

The absorbance of the test item was measured by adding an aliquot of an aqueous solution of test item to buffers solutions with pH from <1.96 to pH >12.1. Results shown significant difference in the absorbance value measured in the pH range between 1.96 to 12.1. The time gap between adding an aliquot of an aqueous solution of test item and capture of the UV spectrum was 2 to 7 minutes. From the preliminary test result it was observed that the dissociation constant of the test item was to be 4.63 ± 0.17.

The test was used to determine the pH range and optimize the wavelength at which the dissociation constant of the test substance was determined.

 

Definitive Test

The absorbance of the test item was measured by adding an aliquot of an aqueous solution of the test item to buffers solutions with pH from <2.02 to pH >11.85. The results are presented in Table 1.

Results shown significant difference in the absorbance value of the test item measured in the pH range between 2.02 to 11.85. The time gap between adding an aliquot of an aqueous solution of the test item and capture of the UV spectrum was 2 to 7 minutes. The time measurements are presented in Table 2. Thus, it is concluded, the compound is undergoing dissociation as a function of change in pH. From the test result it was observed that the dissociation constant of the test item is 4.63 ± 0.14.

Conclusions

The dissociation constant of the test item is 4.63 ± 0.14 when conducting the measurements within 2 to 7 minutes after the addition of test item in to the respective buffer solutions. This dissociation constant value compares favourably with the dissociation constant for technical grade in water, which was determined to be 4.65 ± 0.04 at 20 ± 1 °C (see study M-539985-02-1).

Conclusions:
The dissociation constant (pKa) of the test item at ca. 20 °C was determined to be 4.63 ± 0.14 (OECD Guideline 112, Spectrophotometric method)
