Details on results:
In the HPLC chromatograms of NIKKOL VC-IP, detected at 236 nm and recorded for 11 minutes, no test substance peak was observed. Because
during NOTOX Project 186222 ('Development and validation of an analytical method for NIKKOL VC-IP'), test substance was detected at 236 nm at a comparable concentration level but with a different mobile phase, it was concluded that if test substance had eluted from the column, it had been detected. From the four HPLC chromatograms of 2,4-DDT (i.e. a reference substance with known log Pow of 6.2), the retention time of 2,4-DDT wasdetermined to be 9.4 minutes (mean value). The temperature of the mobile phase was 24°C during the measurements. Comparing the results for
the test substance with the results for 2,4-DDT, it was concluded that the partition coefficient (n-octanol/water) of NIKKOL VC-IP is > 1.6 x 10^6
(log Pow > 6.2).

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The partition coefficient (n-octanol/water) of NIKKOL VC-IP is > 1.6x10^6 (log Pow > 6.2).
