Additional information

Direct Blue 080:1 is a multiconstituent substance composed by the acidic and the sodium salt forms of the same structure (58.44 % and 13.55 % of the substance respectively).

Partition coefficient was determined by OECD Guideline 107 (Partition Coefficient (n-octanol / water), Shake Flask Method. The test was performed on the sodium salt of the Direct Blue 080:1 and the partition coefficient results to be – 4.0319. Moreover, EPI Suite v4.10 has been used in order to compare the two structures. The two results, derived from estimation of partition coefficient by means of KOWWIN v1.68 estimate, are -3.28 for the sodium salt and 0.88 for the acidic form.

The smile notations used for the estimations are:

Sodium salt


Acidic Form



Considering the high similarity between the two estimated values and the composition of the substance, Direct Blue 080:1 is expected to have the same partition coefficient of the sodium salt form as described by the experimental data (- 4.0319).
