Description of key information

The water solubility of lithium behenate was determined to be 0.000046 g/L but the water solubility of the remaining substances in the lithium salts of monocarboxylic acids C14 -C22 category could not be determined because they have surface active properties.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

GLP-compliant, guideline water solubility studies were attempted for lithium myristate, lithium 12 -hydroxystearate and lithium behenate. An unbounded water solubility value was determined for lithium behenate but, for lithium myristate and lithium 12 -hydroxystearate, the studies were not feasible as the substances are surface active. Further investigations on the water solubility of lithium 12 -hydroxystearate are currently ongoing (Covance 2020).
