Description of key information

Gravimetric method was used to determine the solubility of the substance in organic solvent.The experimental value of solubility of Eicosanoic acid in methanol at 33 degC was found to be 1100 mg/L indicating that the substance is soluble in methanol.Using the Soxhlet/Solvent extraction method the solubility of the substance in Petroleum ether is observed to be 2700 mg/L at 33 deg C,indicating that the substance is soluble in Petroleum ether.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Solubility in organic solvents at 20°C:
1 636.36 mg/L

Additional information

Gravimetric method was used to determine the solubility of the substance in organic solvent.The experimental value of solubility of Eicosanoic acid in methanol at 33 degC was found to be 1100 mg/L indicating that the substance is soluble in methanol.Using the Soxhlet/Solvent extraction method the solubility of the substance in Petroleum ether is observed to be 2700 mg/L at 33 deg C,indicating that the substance is soluble in Petroleum ether. The solubility value of Eicosanoic acid in Petroleum ether at 20 degC is equivalent to a value of 1636.36 mg/L.
