Description of key information

The aqueous solubility of dimethyl terephthalate was determined according to the flask method of OECD guideline 105 (Hirschen et al., 2009). Based on the mean measured concentration of DMT in filtered samples, the aqueous solubility of dimethyl terephthalate is 31 mg/L at 20 degrees C.
