20 °C

Additional information

Log Kow for methyl lactate (ML) and 2-ethylhexyl lactate (2-EHL) was measured using OECD 117 HPLC method, yielding -0.2 for ML and 3.3 for 2-EHL. EPISuite-generated values for ML and 2-EHL are -0.67 and 2.69, respectively. Correlating EPISuite-generated values with experimental values yields the following property-property relationship: log Kow = 1.0417 * EPI-log-Kow + 0.4979 EPISuite generated log Kow value for ethyl-(S)-lactate is -0.18. So log Kow for ethyl-(S)-lactate is 1.0417*-0.18 + 0.4979 = 0.31
