Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Initially octanol water partitioning coefficient was analyzed using the flask method (OECD 107). However, the concentration in the aqueous phase was too low for measurement by flask method. Therefore, the HPLC method was used. The provided test substance was found to have a log Pow of 2.33.
Executive summary:

2,2'-Dihydroxy-4 -methoxybenzophenone was measured to have a octanol-water partition coefficient of 2.33.
