Biodegradation in water and sediment: simulation tests

Currently viewing:

Administrative data

Endpoint:
biodegradation in water: simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water
Data waiving:
study technically not feasible
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is highly insoluble in water
Cross-reference
Reason / purpose:
data waiving: supporting information
Reference
Endpoint:
water solubility
Type of information:
experimental study
Adequacy of study:
key study
Study period:
1983
Reliability:
1 (reliable without restriction)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
other: guideline study (literature not available), the data, however, were evaluated in the frame of the OECD SIDS program and therefore regarded as valid
Qualifier:
according to
Guideline:
OECD Guideline 105 (Water Solubility)
GLP compliance:
no
Type of method:
other: not reported
Key result
Water solubility:
0.041 mg/L
Temp.:
25 °C
Remarks on result:
other: p-diisopropylbenzene
Key result
Water solubility:
0.072 mg/L
Temp.:
25 °C
Remarks on result:
other: m-diisopropylbenzene

The water solubilities of m-diisopropylbenzene and p-diisopropylbenzene were determined to be 0.072 and 0.0405 mg/L at 25°C, respectively.

Conclusions:
Interpretation of results (migrated information): insoluble (< 0.1 mg/L)
The water solubilities of m-diisopropylbenzene and p-diisopropylbenzene were determined to be 0.072 and 0.0405 mg/L at 25°C, respectively. According to the classification m- and p-diisopropylbenzene are regarded as insoluble.
Executive summary:

In a study conducted according to OECD Guideline 105 (Water Solubility), the water solubilities of m-diisopropylbenzene and p-diisopropylbenzene were determined to be 0.072 and 0.0405 mg/L at 25°C, respectively.
