The mean average of the pKa for the three determinations was equal to 7.51.

The mean Relative Standard Deviation for the tree determinations was equal to 0.35%.

The results obtained during the three determinations were less than ± 0.1 log units.

Conclusions:
Under the conditions of the study, the pKa of the test material is equal to 7.51 between 19.8 °C and 21 °C.
Executive summary:

The determination of the dissociation constant (pKa) of the test material was studied in compliance with OECD TG No. 112 using the titration method.

During this study, it was shown that the value of the water dissociation constant of 3-ethoxy-4-hydroxybenzaldehyde (ethylvanillin) [121-32-4] is equal to 7.51 between 19.8 °C and 21 °C.

Remarks:
The value is not an experimental result, however the available elements justify the validity of the estimated value. The QSAR model SPARC was validated for compounds having one until 8 ionization sites and for all organic compounds except : covalent hydrates, tautomers, carbon acid reaction center where the perturbations for this group are very large and quaternary amines. Ethylvanillin is not part of this kind of compounds and has one possible ionization site implying that SPARC model is validated for this test item.

Conclusions:
The model has been run in November 2015 for this substance.
Ethylvanilline has a pka value of 7.84.
Executive summary:

The dissociation constant was predicted using a reliable QSAR model: SPARC (SPARC Automated Reasoning Calculator v5.1, March 2013). After confirmation that ethylvanillinfalls into the model applicability domain, it was shown that the test item has a pka value of 7.84.

Description of key information

Dissociation constant = 7.51 between 19.8°C and 21°C.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

pKa at 20°C:
7.51

Additional information

One experimental GLP study (Défitraces, 2017), OECD 112 compliant, was available and was selected as key study. The dissociation constant value in this study is 7.51 between 19.8°C and 21°C. The study was with reliability 1 according to Klimisch scale.

Two other data issue from QSAR model were selected as supporting studies and were with reliability 2.
