Description of key information

In a study conducted according to a shake flask method, the log Kow's from adipic acid (logKow 0.162), glutaric acid (logKow -0.188) and succinic acid (logKow -0.55) were determined.
The log Kow of carboxylic acids, di-, C4 -6 is in the range of -0.55 - 0.162 (BASF, 1988).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The determination of the logKow's was performed for the single compounds, and for the carboxylic acids, di-, C4-6 in mixture. The shake flask method is recommended for pure substances only. However, the obtained values from mixture and single determinations have a good correlation. Therefore the highest value of adipic acid (logKow 0.162) received from the mixture was considered as valid.
