This endpoint is covered by the category approach for soluble iron salts
(please see the section for physical and chemical properties for the
category justification/report format). Testing for this endpoint has
been waived in accordance with column 2 restrictions. In addition a
study is considered scientifically unjustified. The overall dissociation
constant is not relevant and the environmental fate assessment bases on
rapidly formed transformation products. The behaviour of iron ions in
solution is dependent on the conditions. Key influences include oxygen
content, pH and the presence of potential ligand anions with which the
cationic iron might associate. When the ferric ion is resulting from
oxidation of the ferrous ion or directly released to water the hexa-aquo
Kation is formed. This is strongly acidic with a pKa of 3.05 (Cotton &
Wilkinson 1972). Thus:
[Fe(H2O)6]3+ -> [Fe(H2O)6](OH)2+ + H+(aq)
Nonetheless the Fe-hexa-aquo-kation is only minor species due its
limited solubility, short half-life, finally precipitation and
eventually polymerisation in the environment.
