3.5

The chemical mechanisms according to the model underpinning the predicted result
(OECD principle 5)

Adsorption is caused by temporary (reversible) or permanent bonding between the substance and a surface (e.g. due to van der Waals interactions, hydrogen bonding to hydroxyl groups, ionic interactions, covalent bonding, etc.). The organic carbon normalized adsorption coefficient (Koc) is the ratio of a substance concentration sorbed in the organic matter component of soil or sediment to that in the aqueous phase at equilibrium.

MCI methodology: The first-order molecular connectivity index is a measure to describe a variety of properties of chemicals. According to Sabljic (1984; cited in Meylan et al., 1992), the soil sorption potential is highly correlated with the first order MCI. Therefore, it has been used to derive the adsorption coefficient.
