Additional information

In a first step, a Column Elution method (according to OECD Guideline 105) was performed. However, the concentrations measured were not stable over time. Concentration of the test item was strongly decreased after 24 hours. This is attributed to relatively rapid abiotic degradation of this substance. It was decided to stop the experimentation and to use a slow-stir protocol derived from the OECD Guideline 123 Slow Stirring method which did not allow an emulsion to be formed. The study was performed in accordance with GLP requirements.

In conclusion, the water solubility of OO-t-butyl-O-(2-ethylhexyl)monoperoxycarbonate is 5.39 mg/L.
