EC number: 204-000-3
CAS number: 112-72-1
Results: 1.5 mg/L / 1.0 mg/L / Not
Mean Concentration in Water: 1.0 mg/L
Standard Deviation for These Data:
Tetradecanol was determined according ASTM E 1148. The
water solubility was determined to be 1.3 mg/l at 23 °C.
The water solubility is estimated to be 0.202 mg/l at a loading rate of 1000 mg/l.
The water solubility of a commercial sample of tetradecan-1-ol is 1.3
mg/L at 23°C and pH 5.5.
A water solubility value of 1.3 mg/L at 23°C
and pH 5.5 was determined with the use of a flask method in accordance
with ASTM E 1148. The result is considered to be reliable.
It is supported by a value of 0.191 mg/L at
25°C, taken from a reliable and definitive reference source for
solubility data (Yalkowsky and He, 2003), and consistent results from
other reference sources. These
results are supported by a predicted water solubility value of 0.2 mg/l
at 25°C which was obtained for the substance using a validated QSAR
The value taken from literature for pure
alcohol (0.191 mg/l) is used in exposure modelling.
All the available results indicate that
tetradecan-1-ol is slightly soluble in water.
Discussion of trends in the Category
of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:
As chain length increases, water solubility
decreases, because the free energy required for a molecule to dissolve
becomes less favourable for larger molecules.
