Description of key information

Two TGD-approved handbooks agree that the substance is soluble in water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The water solubility of D-glucono-1,5 -lactone was sourced from Merck Index: An Encyclopedia of Chemicals, Drugs, and Biologicals (14th Ed.) and the Condensed Chemical Dictionary (10th Ed.), which are known to contain peer-reviewed data of Klimisch-2 reliability. The Merck index reports that the solubility of the substance is 590 g/L, while no information on the temperature or pH was reported. Alternatively, the Condensed Chemical Dictionary states that the substance is “readily soluble in water”; however, no numerical value for concentration or information on solution temperature or pH was reported.
