Description of key information

log Koc (constituent 1-3) = 2.99 – 3.37 (pH 4, ChemProp v6.5, Franco, Fu & Trapp acid model)

log Koc (constituent 1-3) = 2.08 - 2.27 (pH 7, ChemProp v6.5, Franco, Fu & Trapp acid model)

log Koc (constituent 1-3) = 1.93 – 2.01 (pH 9, ChemProp v6.5, Franco, Fu & Trapp acid model)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There is no study available investigating the log Koc of N-methyl-N-(C18-(unsaturated)alkanoyl)glycine (EC 701-177-3). Therefore, the log Koc was calculated for three constituents, N-methyl-N-oleoylglycine and N-[methyl-[(9Z,12Z)-1-oxo-9,12octadecadienyl glycine as main components and oleic acid, which is of minor importance due to a lower percentage, with the Franco, Fu and Trapp model (2009) for ionisable acids at the environmentally relevant pH values 4, 7 and 9. The required model input parameters are the pH value (4, 7, and 9), the pKa value (5.0, 20 °C, OECD 112) and the log Pn (3.5 and 4.20), corresponding to the log Kow for the neutral molecule (≥ 3.5 ≤ 4.2, 20 °C, EU A.8, HPLC).

All molecules fall within the applicability domain of the model (pKa and log Kow). The obtained log Koc is 2.99 – 3.37 (Koc = 977.56 – 2331.76 L/kg) at pH 4, 2.08 – 2.27 (Koc = 119.20 – 188.04 L/kg) at pH 7, and 1.93 – 2.01 (Koc = 84.50 – 101.37 L/kg) at pH 9. The log Koc at pH 7 is considered as key value and indicates that the substance is low to moderately adsorptive.

Based on low water solubility (0.44 mg/L), low vapour pressure (1.31E-4 Pa at 20 °C) and a moderate log Koc of 2.08 - 2.27 at pH7, the substance will distribute mainly into water. However, due to its ready biodegradability, the substance will not persist in these compartments.
