Description of key information

The n-octanol/water partition coefficient (Kow ; also known as log P) is defined as the ratio of the equilibrium concentrations of a dissolved substance in a 2-phase system consisting of the largely immiscible solvents n-octanol and water. Thus Log P in this case is found to be 1.65 at 25 deg C.
