Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The concentration of the test item Sylodent VP 5 in ethanol using ICP-OES was calculated based on the LOQ of Silicon (227 μg/L) and the Silicon content in the test item as:
< 0.49 mg/L at 20.0 ± 0.5 °C
Executive summary:

The solubility of the test item Sylodent VP 5 in ethanol was determined by measurement of the Silicon concentration in the filtrated test solutions using two different methods, ICPOES and photometry.

The preliminary test which is described in the guideline was not performed. After consultation with the sponsor the flask method was used.

In the main test, 50 g/L test item in water were used for the test. Six individual flasks (flasks 1A - 1C and 2 – 4) were prepared. Five vessels (blank, flasks 1C (for the sampling point 72 h) and 2 – 4) were set onto the shaking apparatus immediately. After 24 ± 2 hours, flask 1B (for the sampling point 48 h) and after further 24 ± 2 hours, flask 1A (for the

sampling point 24 h) were set on the shaker and all flasks were shaken for further 24 ± 2 hours at room temperature (20.0 ± 0.5 °C). Then, flasks 1A - 1C were taken from the shaker, samples were taken, membrane filtrated and analysed for Silicon via ICP-OES on day 3 (flasks 1A, 1B, 1C). As the measured value lay below the LOQ of Si (< 227 μg/L Si) the test was prolonged and the flasks 1A – 1C were measured getting the values for days 4 – 7. The test was finished on day 7 as the measured value lay below the LOQ, too.

Therefore, on the same day 7, flasks 2 – 4 were sampled and analysed for Silicon in the same fashion.

No Tyndall effect (i.e. a laser beam was not scattered when transmitted through the liquid) could be observed indicating that no colloidal dispersed particles were present.

The concentration of the test item Sylodent VP 5 using photometry was calculated based on the LOQ of Silicon (500 μg/L) and the Silicon content in the test item as < 1.07 mg/L.

The concentration of the test item Sylodent VP 5 in ethanol using ICP-OES was calculated based on the LOQ of Silicon (227 μg/L) and the Silicon content in the test item as:

< 0.49 mg/L at 20.0 ± 0.5 °C

< 0.49 * 10-3 kg/m3 (SI units).
