Additional information

The partition Coefficient n-octanol/water of4-chlororesorcinol(CAS No. 95-88-5)was determined by the Reverse Phase High Performance Liquid Chromatographic method according to OECD Guideline No. 117 for Testing of Chemicals. The reference substances were chosen according to structural similarity with the test substance. The reference substances were4 Acetyl pyridine, Phenol, Benzene, Bromobenzene, 1,4 Dichlorobenzene, 1,2,4, Trichlorobenzenehaving Pow value ranging from 0.5 to 4.2. TheLog Pow value of the test chemical was found tobe 0.895± 0.003 at 25°C.
