Description of key information

The water solubility of the test item n-heptanol was assessed according to the OECD guideline 105. Validity criteria were fulfilled. The water solubility of n-heptanol was estimated at 1630 mg/l. Consequently, it can be considered soluble in water.
 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
1.63 g/L
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Experimental data have been compiled from 35 data-source publications (Yaws et al; 1990). The accuracy of this database was assessed as sufficient for impact studies. The water solubility of heptan-1-ol was reported at 1740 mg/l. No further information is reported in the publication.


 


Based on this result, n-heptanol can be considered as soluble in water (1000 - 10 000 mg/l).
