Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
Evaluated log Kow values of 1.21 and 1.33 were reported for diethyl carbonate.
Executive summary:

In the databank containing evaluated information, two values for the n-octanol/water partition coefficient log Kow of diethyl carbonate are reported. According to the databank entry a log Kow=1.21 was determined by Hansch & Leo (1987) via the shake-flask method. Park & Park (2000) observed a log Kow=1.33 at 25°C using the shake-flask method and GLC analysis.
