Description of key information

The partition coefficient has been determined using the HPLC method, using Method A8 of Directive 67/548/EEC. The partition coefficient of the test material has been determined as log P >5.9 at 21°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Log Kow (Log Pow):
5.9
at the temperature of:
21 °C

Additional information

The partition coefficient (P) of a substance is defined as the ratio of its equilibrium concentrations in a two phase system consisting of two largely immiscible solvents, in this study, n-octanol and water.

Pow = C octanol/C water
