Details on results:
After a stirring time of 24 hours, 48 hours and 72 hours at 30 °C, the samples were equilibrated for another 24 hours at 20 °C. Afterwards, the samples were taken through a tap at the bottom of the flask, checked for Tyndall effect, diluted and analyzed by HPLC with MS/MS detection. The result found after an incubation time of 72 hours exceeded by more than 15 % (129 %) the result found after an incubation time of 48 hours. To verify whether the saturation was achieved,
the test was prolonged for another 48 hours at 30 °C followed by 24 hours equilibration time at 20 °C giving a total stirring time of 72 hours, 96 hours and 120 hours. There was no Tyndall effect observed in the test samples.
According to the test guideline, the result found after a defined incubation time should not differ by more than 15 % from the result found after a shorter incubation time. After 120 hours in comparison to 96 hours, 10 % increase of the test item concentration was observed. The acceptance criterium was therefore fulfilled, the saturation was achieved after 96 hours. The study is therefore valid. The first measurement of the 72 hours is unexpectedly high in comparison to the previous and following measurements and can be considered as an outlier, probably due to microdroplets even if no Tyndall effect was observed.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
During this study, the water solubility of TRI-N-HEXYLAMINE was determined at 20 °C using OECD Guideline for the Testing of Chemicals, No. 105 adapted to a slow stirring design. The water solubility was found to be 4.17 mg/L ± 0.24 mg/L at a pH of 7.5.
Executive summary:

During this study the water solubility of TRI-N-HEXYLAMINE was determined based on the OECD Guideline for the Testing of Chemicals, No. 105: Water Solubility, modified to a slow-stirring test design, and following GLP.

For each time point, the test vessel was filled with 840 mL water. A defined amount of the test item (about 110 mg) was applied on the water surface of each of three glass vessels. The vessels were fitted with glass stoppers. The flasks were kept at about 30 °C via water surrounding circulation and stirred slowly (less than 100 rpm) to avoid formation of an emulsion.

The vessels were incubated for 24 hours, 48 hours and 72 hours, respectively. After that incubation period, the temperature was reduced to 20 °C and the samples were re-equilibrated for 24 hours without stirring. The concentration of the test item in the aqueous solution was determined by HPLC with MS/MS detection. Since the saturation of the water could not be demonstrated after 72 hours, the study was prolonged. The same vessels were further incubated at 30 °C for another 48 hours giving final stirring times at 30 °C of 72 hours, 96 hours and 120 hours. After that additional incubation period, the temperature was reduced to 20 °C and the samples were re-equilibrated for 24 hours without stirring. The concentration of the test item was determined in the aqueous solution by HPLC with MS/MS detection.

According to the test guideline, the result found after a defined incubation time should not differ by more than 15 % from the result found after a shorter incubation time. After 120 hours in comparison to 96 hours, 10 % increase of the test item concentration was observed. The acceptance criterium was therefore fulfilled, the saturation was achieved after 96 hours. The study is therefore valid.

The water solubility of TRI-N-HEXYLAMINE at 20 °C was found to be 4.17 ± 0.24 mg/L at a mean pH of 7.5.
