Description of key information

The solubility of the xylene isomers and ethylbenzene in water range from 146 to 190.7 mg/l at 25°C. The solubility of m-xylene is 146 mg/l, o-xylene is 170.5 mg/l, the solubility of p-xylene is 156 mg/l and the solubility of ethylbenzene is 190.7 mg/L. The mean value of 165.8 mg/l will be used for the risk assessment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Yalkowsky and He (2003) is a peer reviewed handbook and so can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint.
