Octanol-water partition coefficient [Fatty alcohols C16 – C18 (even numbered), branched and linear]: 6.1 - 7.6 at 20°C (QSAR)
alcohols C16 – C18 (even numbered), branched and linear is
of unknown or variable composition (UVCB) containing
linear and branched alcohols with carbon number in the range C14-C20.
Partition coefficient is only meaningful in respect of the individual
constituents such a substance. A result for the whole substance is not
scientifically meaningful for the purpose of assessment of exposure or
risk. The need for a sound understanding of partition coefficient is
acceptably met by estimation of the individual constituents present in
the substance. A predicted log Kow of 6.1 - 7.6 at 20°C was determined
for the constituents of the substance using a validated QSAR estimation
method. The result is considered reliable and selected as key study.
This value is supported by a log Kow of >3 reported for the substance in
a secondary source to which no reliability could be assigned.
