Materials and methods

Principles of method if other than guideline:
The vapour pressure was estimated in EPISuite v4.0 (2009) using MPBPVP v1.43. For solids, the vapour pressure is calculated by the modified Grain method, as described in Lyman (1985), which is a modification and significant improvement of the modified Watson method. The vapour pressure for solids is calculated using the melting point, to convert the liquid-phase vapour pressure to the solid-phase vapour pressure and estimation error can be introduced by poor melting point estimates or values. The accuracy of MPBPWIN's "suggested" vapour pressure estimate was tested on a dataset of 3037 compounds with known, experimental vapour pressure values between 15 and 30°C, taken from EPISuite’s PHYSPROP Database. Currently there is no universally accepted definition of model domain, though property estimates are potentially less accurate for compounds outside the Molecular Weight range of the training set compounds, and/or compounds with more of a given fragment than the maximum for all training set compounds. When interpreting results, it should also be considered whether a compound may have a functional group(s) or other structural features not represented in the training set, and for which no fragment coefficient was developed.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

The vapour pressure of lithium myristate is estimated to be 2.29 E-12 Pa at 25°C.
Executive summary:

The vapour pressure of lithium myristate was estimated using a QSAR model (MPBPVP v1.43 in EPISuite v4.00, US EPA 2009), following the Modified Grain Method. The vapour pressure of lithium myristate is estimated to be below the limits of detection of the test methods.
