Details on study design: HPLC method:
EQUIPMENT
- Test utilized a high performance liquid chromatograph. A commercially available cyanopropyl reverse phase HPLC column containing lipophilic and polar moieties was used.

DETERMINATION OF DEAD TIME
- Method: The dead time was determined by measuring the retention time of formamide (purity: 99.94%) at 680 mg/L in methanol..

REFERENCE SUBSTANCES
- Solutions of reference standards were prepared in methanol (see table 3.1)

PREPARATION OF THE SAMPLE SOLUTION
- Test item (0.1039 g) was diluted to 10 mL with tetrahydrofuran

DETERMINATION OF RETENTION TIMES
- The sample, dead time and reference standard solutions were injected in duplicate using the following high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) parameters:
HPLC system : Agilent Technologies 1200, incorporating workstation and autosampler
Detectors: Agilent variable wavelength detector (VWD) and Polymer Laboratories evaporative light scattering detector 2100 (ELSD)
Column : Water XSelect CN 5 µm (150 x 4.6 mm id)
Column Temperature : 30 °C
Flow rate : 1.0 mL/min
Mobile phase : methanol: purified water (55:45 v/v)
pH of mobile phase : 6.8
Injection volume : 10 μL
UV detector wavelength (dead time and reference standards): 210 nm
ELSD parameters (sample): nebuliser temperature: 40 °C; evaporator temperature: 80 °C; gas flow: 1.0 L/min

The mobile phase was ramped to 100% tetrahydrofuran shortly after the elution of the last reference standard to elute the highly retained test item components. This was carried out for the sample and sample blank injections only.

EVALUATION
- Calculation of capacity factors k':
The capacity factors were determined using the following equation:
k’ = (tr– t0)/ t0
where:
k’: capacity factor; tr: retention time (min); t0: dead time (min)

Construction of the calibration curve:
A correlation of log10 k’ versus Log10Koc of the calibration standards was plotted using linear regression. The capacity factor (k’) for the reference standards was calculated from the retention time data of the dead time and reference standard solutions. Log10Koc values of the reference standards are those quoted in OECD 121.

- Determination of the log Koc value:
Adsorption Coefficient:
Log10Koc = (Log10k’-A) /B

Koc: adsorption coefficient
k’: capacity factor
A: intercept of the calibration curve
B: slope of the calibration curve
Type:

Details on results (HPLC method):
- Typical chromatograms are attached.
- Retention times of the dead time and the retention times, capacity factors and log10 Koc values for the reference standards are shown in Tables 3.2 and 3.3 (attached).
- The calibration curve is shown in Figure 3.1 (attached).
- The retention times, capacity factor and log10 Koc value determined for the sample are shown in Table 3.4 (attached).
Validity criteria fulfilled:

Conclusions:
The adsorption coefficient of the test item has been determined to be greater than 4.27 x 10E05 with log10 Koc > 5.63.
