Description of key information

The experimental value of octanol water partition co-efficient (log Pow) of chlorocresol was found to be 0.477 at 30 degC and pH of 5.03. This value indicates that chlorocresol is relatively hydrophobic in nature.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Log Kow (Log Pow):
0.477
at the temperature of:
30 °C

Additional information

The experimental value of octanol water partition co-efficient (log Pow) of chlorocresol was found to be 0.477 at 30 degC and pH of 5.03. This value indicates that chlorocresol is relatively hydrophobic in nature.

Supporting study shows value different from Key study due to difference in the estimation conditions. However, for the purpose of chemical safety assessment key study value 0.477 shall be considered.
