Additional information

A BASF study (No. 104547/02) was conducted similar to OECD 107 to determine the partition coefficient of 2-ethyl-4 -methylimidazole by using the flask method. The partition coefficient of 2-ethyl-4 -methylimidazole

was determined to be 1.13 at 25 °C at pH 9.5 -9.65. Furthermore the Syracuse Research Coperation, Physical Properties Database reports the partition coefficient of 2-ethyl-4 -methylimidazole to be 1.64 at 25°C by calculation. The value from the study was chosen as the most reliable one for the partition coefficient.
