Description of key information


Hydrocarbons, C6 -C10 (even numbered), n-alkanes, isoalkanes, >5% n-hexane are hydrocarbon UVCBs. Standard tests for this endpoint are intended for single substances and are not appropriate for this complex substance. However, this endpoint is characterised using quantitative structure property relationships for representative hydrocarbon structures that comprise the hydrocarbon blocks used to assess the environmental risk of this substance with the PETRORISK model (see Product Library in PETRORISK report attached in IUCLID section 13).

Adsorption coefficient has been calculated using Petrorisk. The Koc of Hydrocarbons, C6 -C10 (even numbered), n-alkanes, isoalkanes, >5% n-hexane ranges from 8.13 x10^1 - 2.75 x10^6.

Distribution modelling:

The distribution of the substance in the environmental compartments, air, water, soil, and sediment, has been calculated using the PETRORISK Model, version 5.0. Computer modeling is an accepted method for estimating the environmental distribution of chemicals. Distribution modeling results are included in the 'Multimedia distribution modeling results' tab in the PETRORISK spreadsheet attached to Section 13 of IUCLID.

Based on the regional scale exposure assessment, the multimedia distribution of the substance is 99% to air, 0.45% to water, 0.12 to soil and 0.39% to sediment.
