Description of key information

The partition coefficient is expected to be low  due to the high solubility of the substance in water which is a consequence of the polarity of the molecule due to its content in polar groups

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Log Kow (Log Pow):
-0.28

20 °C

Additional information

The partition coefficient is expected to be low due to the high solubility of the substance in water which is a consequence of the polarity of the molecule due to its content in polar groups. The calculations fulfill the following criteria of validity defined in the ECHA Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, Chapter R.6: QSARs and grouping of chemicals:

  • "results are derived from a (Q)SAR model whose scientific validity has been established": Model developed for and checked by EPA
  • "the substance falls within the applicability domain of the (Q)SAR model": organic substance with calculated result falling within data of test set
  • "results are adequate for the purpose of classification and labelling and/or risk assessment, andadequate and reliable documentation of the applied method is provided": Information is conclusive

The calculated result is in line with the above expert judgement
