tR1, tR2: retention times (1st and 2nd calibration)

k = (tR/t0) -1: capacity factor

t0: dead time = retention time of thiourea

Linear regression parameters: log Kow = a x log k + b

a = 3.262

b = 1.991

r² = 0.995

Test substance:

tR1 = 5.666

tR2 = 5.66

mean tR = 5.663

k = 3.184

log k = 0.503

log Kow = 3.6

Conclusions:
The substance should have low potential for bioaccumulation.
The result is below the threshold (logKow <4) according to Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP).
Executive summary:

According to OECD/EC HPLC method, a partition coefficient Log Kow of 3.6 was measured for the substance.

Description of key information

The substance should have low potential for bioaccumulation.

The result is below the threshold (logKow <4) according to Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Log Kow (Log Pow):
3.6
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

Two fully reliable studies, conducted according to the OECD guideline, are available. Both provide very consistent results. However, the (Rudio, 1995) study was prefered and considered as key, because calibration covered a wider range of log Kow values, and with a better regression coefficient; moreover, it was conducted at 25°C, while (Broto, 2009) study was conducted at 40°C.
