Description of key information

This study was performed according to the EEC method A.8, Official Journal of the European Communities 92/69/EEC, 1992; the OECD guideline for the testing of chemicals, number 107, 1995 and the Product Properties Test Guideline, OPPTS 830.7550, USA, 1996. 
The octanol / water partition coefficient (Pow) of methylnitroguanidine expressed also as the logarithm to base 10 (log Pow) was determined to be
Pow = 0.15 +- (0.0011) at 25°C
log Pow = -0.83 +- (0.0032) at 25°C

Key value for chemical safety assessment

at the temperature of:
20 °C
