Additional information

The prediction of soil adsorption properties of the substance 1,2,3 -propanetriol, glycidyl ethers was determined with the computer program KOCWIN v2.00 (EPIWIN software) by US-EPA (Chemservice GmbH, 2011). The program estimates the organic-normalized sorption coefficient for soil, which is designated as Koc. The following two models are used: the Salbjic molecular connectivity (MCI) method as well as the traditional method which is based on the logPow value of the substance. The MCI method is taken more seriously into account, due to the fact that improved correction factors are included, resulting in a Koc value of 10 L/kg. The traditional method reveals a value of 0.2034 L/kg. Based on the achieved results, the adsorption potential of the test substance is regarded as very low.
