Administrative data

vapour pressure
Type of information:
Adequacy of study:
key study
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
results derived from a valid (Q)SAR model and falling into its applicability domain, with adequate and reliable documentation / justification
Justification for type of information:
The substance decomposes before melting point. Therefore, experimental determination of vapour pressure is not technically possible at elevated temperatures.

Test guideline
according to
other: REACH Guidance on QSARs
Principles of method if other than guideline:
- Software tool(s) used including version: EPI Suite v4.11
- Model(s) used: Mpbpwin Model version 1.43
The model estimates vapour pressure by three different methods:
- the Antoine equation (Lyman WJ, Reehl WF and Rosenblatt DH. 1990. Handbook of Chemical Property Estimation Methods. Washington, DC: American Chemical Society);
- the Modified Grain Method (Lyman WJ. 1985. In: Environmental Exposure From Chemicals. Volume I. Neely WB and Blau GE (eds). Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press, Inc., Chapter 2);
- the Mackay Method (Lyman WJ. 1985. In: Environmental Exposure From Chemicals. Volume I. Neely WB and Blau GE (eds). Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press, Inc.).
MPBPWIN selects a “suggested” vapour pressure: the modified Grain for solids and the average of the Antoine and the modified Grain for liquids and gases.
A dataset of 3037 compounds with experimentally determined vapour pressure values has been used to evaluate the model (using the “suggested” values as outcome), giving a correlation coefficient of 0.914. The evaluation clearly shows that the model reliability decrease for vapour pressure below 0.0001 Pa.
The dataset contains 1642 compounds with available experimental Boiling points and Melting points. The correlation coefficient evaluated on this subset (0.949) indicates that VP estimates are more accurate when experimental BP and MP are available.

Remarks on result:
other: Based on very low QSAR calculated value (2.12E-30 Pa) a vapour pressure below 0.0001 Pa can be estimated for the substance.
