Description of key information

The organic carbon-water partitioning coefficient (Koc) of 80 l/kg was derived based on the available data for the consituents of C5-6 branched alkylmethyl-ethers.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Koc at 20 °C:
80

Additional information

Based on the considerations described in the document “Read-across substantiation C5-6 branched alkylmethyl-ethers” (incl. the supporting references Tuppurainen et al., 2007 and Niska et al., 2008), it can be concluded that the available information of TAME can be used to predict the adsorption and desorption of the substance ‘C5-6 branched alkylmethyl-ethers’ with sufficient certainty.

The organic carbon-water partitioning coefficient (Koc) of 80 l/kg was derived based on the available data for the consituents of C5-6 branched alkylmethyl-ethers.
