Description of key information

Due to the similar reliability ot the available data the average of the two experimental and the QSAR estimation using WATERNT (v.1.01) is used for the further assessment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
0.076 mg/L
at the temperature of:
20 °C

Additional information

Currently four values for the water solubility of 2 -(phenylmethoxy)naphthalene are available. Two results from experimental studies and two estimations using different moduls of the Episuite software package. While both experimental results show a water solubility below 0.1 mg/L (0.078 and 0.027 mg/L) the (Q)SAR estimations show a slightly higher solubility (0 .123 and 0.673 mg/L). As no applicable correction factor for the estimation using WSKOW is available, the result is assumed to be of minor reliability. However, all available data indicate a very low solubility, respectively insolubility, in water.
