The partition coefficient (log Kow) value for the test substance were estimated using the group contributions methodology of Molinspiration (miLogP2.2 - November 2005).

Conclusions:
Using the group contribution method, of molinspiration (miLogP 2.2), the weighted average partition coefficient (log Kow) value for test substance was predicted to be 4.87.
Executive summary:

The partition coefficient (log Kow) value for the test substance, C12-18 and C18-unsatd. MEA was predicted using the group contribution method, of Molinspiration (miLogP 2.2) program. Since the test substance is a UVCB, the log Kow values were predicted for the individual constituents using SMILES codes as the input parameter. Using the group contribution method, the log Kow values for the individual constituents of the test substance ranged from 2.25 to 7.3. All constituents meet the molecular weight and log Kow descriptor domain criteria. Given that the constituents are structurally very similar and vary only in the carbon chain length, a weighted average value, which considers the percentage of the constituent in the substance, was considered to dampen the errors in predictions (if any). Therefore, the weighted average log Kow value was calculated as 4.87. Overall, considering either the individual log Kow predictions for the constituents or the weighted average values, the test substance is expected to be less hydrophobic with a good absorption and low accumulation potential. Therefore, the log Kow predictions for the test substance using Molinspiration (miLogP 2.2), can be considered to be reliable with moderate confidence.

Conclusions:
Using the fragment constant method, of KOWWIN V.1.68 program of EPI SuiteTM, the weighted average partition coefficient (log Kow) value for test substance was predicted to be 3.86.
Executive summary:

The partition coefficient (log Kow) value for the test substance, C12-18 and C18-unsatd. MEA was predicted using the fragment constant method, of KOWWIN V.1.68 program. Since the test substance is a UVCB, the log Kow values were predicted for the individual constituents using SMILES codes as the input parameter. Using the fragment constant method, the log Kow values for the individual constituents of the test substance ranged from 1.28 to 6.19. All constituents meet the molecular weight and structural fragment descriptor domain criteria. Given that the constituents are structurally very similar and vary only in the carbon chain length, a weighted average value, which considers the percentage of the constituent in the substance, was considered to dampen the errors in predictions (if any). Therefore, the weighted average log Kow value was calculated as 3.86. Overall, considering either the individual log Kow predictions for the constituents or the weighted average values, the test substance is expected to be less hydrophobic with a good absorption and low accumulation potential. Therefore, the log Kow predictions for the test substance using KOWWIN v1.69 can be considered to be reliable with moderate confidence.

Annotation: According to the applied guideline the slow-stirring method is particularly suitable for the determination of substances with expected log Pow values of 5 and higher, for which the shake-flask method (generally applicable from log Pow = -2 to 4) is prone to yield erroneous results.

However, according to the REACH Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment - Chapter R.7a: Endpoint specific guidance, the shake-flask method is not recommended for surfactants. Instead, the slow-stirring method is advised as the preferred test method in this case.

Conclusions:
Under the study conditions, the partition coefficient (log Pow) was determined to be 4.3 at 25°C.
Executive summary:

A study was conducted to determine the partition coefficient of the test substance, C12-18 and C18-unsatd. MEA (purity not specified), according to OECD Guideline 123. The concentration of the test substance in the water and 1 -octanol phase was determined after 14, 16, 18 and 20 h, ensuring that an equilibrium concentration was established in both phases. At each test time, the three different test solutions were analyzed. The logarithm of the ratio of the concentration of the test material in 1-octanol and water (log (Co/Cw)) was calculated for each sampling time. The resulting mean values for the different test solutions were used for the determination of partition coefficients. Under the study conditions, the partition coefficient (log Pow) was determined to be 4.3 at 25°C (Frischmann, 2010).

Conclusions:
Using the efficient partition algorithm and associative neural networks based regression equations from ALOGPS V.2.1, the weighted average Partition coefficient (log Kow) value for test substance was predicted to be 4.45.
Executive summary:

The partition coefficient (log Kow) value for the test substance, C8-18 and C18-unsatd. DEA was predicted using the EPA and ASNN based regression equations from ALOGPS V.2.1. Since the test substance is a UVCB, the log Kow values were predicted for the individual constituents using SMILES codes as the input parameter. Using the EPA and ASNN-based regression equations, the log Kow values for the individual constituents of the test substance ranged from 1.43 to 6.74. All constituents meet the E-indices, molecular weight and number of non-hydrogen atoms descriptor domain criteria. Further, given that the constituents are structurally very similar and vary only in the carbon chain length, a weighted average value, which considers the percentage of the constituent in the substance, was considered to dampen the errors in predictions (if any). Therefore, the weighted average log Kow value was calculated as 4.45. Overall, considering either the individual log Kow predictions for the constituents or the weighted average values, the test substance is expected to be less hydrophobic with a good absorption and low accumulation potential. Therefore, the log Kow predictions for the test substance using ALOGPS v.2.1 can be considered to be reliable with moderate confidence.

Description of key information

The partition coefficient was determined according to OECD Guideline 123 (Frischmann, 2010).

Weighted average partition coefficient values for the substance were also modelled using the fragment constant method of the KOWWIN V.1.68 program of EPI Suite, the group contribution method of Molinspiration (miLogP 2.2) and the efficient partition algorithm and associative neural network-based regression equations from ALOGPS V.2.1.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Log Kow (Log Pow):
4.3
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

The measured log Kow was equivalent to 4.3.

Using the fragment constant method of the KOWWIN V.1.68 program of EPI Suite, the weighted average partition coefficient (log Kow) value for test substance was predicted to be 3.86. According to the group contribution method of Molinspiration (miLogP 2.2), the weighted average log Kow was 4.87. According to the efficient partition algorithm and associative neural network-based regression equations from ALOGPS V.2.1, the weighted average log Kow was 4.85.

The measured log Kow was retained as key value for risk assessment purposes.
