Description of key information

The experimental value of octanol water partition co-efficient (log Pow) of 1-(6-methoxy-2-naphthyl)ethan-1-one by shake flask method was found to be 1.5224 at 27 degC and pH of 4.16. This value indicates that 1-(6-methoxy-2-naphthyl)ethan-1-one is relatively hydrophilic in nature.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Log Kow (Log Pow):
1.52
at the temperature of:
27 °C

Additional information

The experimental value of octanol water partition co-efficient (log Pow) of 1-(6-methoxy-2-naphthyl)ethan-1-one by shake flask method was found to be 1.5224 at 27 degC and pH of 4.16. This value indicates that 1-(6-methoxy-2-naphthyl)ethan-1-one is relatively hydrophilic in nature.

Supporting Study shows value different from Key study which could be due to difference in the estimation conditions. However for the purpose of chemical safety assessment key study value 1.52 shall be considered.
