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.

Description of key information

Vapour pressure < 0.5 Pa at 20 °C (QSAR: EPI Suite/Mpbpwin version 1.43, ARChem SPARC. version 4.6)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The vapour pressure of the test substance was estimated using two indipendent QSAR models. 0.0176 Pa (at 20 °C) and 0.416 Pa (at 25 °C) have been calculated by ARChem SPARC (v4.6) and EPI Suite/Mpbpwin (v1.43), respectively.

A vapour pressure < 0.5 Pa is taken as a conservative key value for the chemical safety assessment for this substance.
