Description of key information

The Soil Adsorption Coefficient i.e Koc value of Eicosanoic acid was estimated as 38850 L/kg by means of MCI method.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Koc at 20 °C:
31 080

Additional information

The Soil Adsorption Coefficient i.e Koc value of Eicosanoic acid was estimated as 38850 L/kg by means of MCI method. This indicates that Eicosanoic acid will have a very strong tendency of sorption to soil and sediment and therefore have negligible migration potential to groundwater.This Koc value when converted at 20 degC is equivalent to 31080.
