HPLC method

Details on study design: HPLC method:
EQUIPMENT
- Apparatus: Alliance Separation Module 2695 (Waters, Milford, MA, USA)
- Type, material and dimension of analytical (guard) column: 150 mm x 4.6 mm i.d. Hypersil BDS-CN; dp=5 µm (Alltech, Deerfield, IL, USA)
- Detection system: Photodiode Array Detector 2966 (Waters)

MOBILE PHASE neutral pH: 25/75 (v/v) acetonitrile/Milli-Q Water

DETERMINATION OF DEAD TIME

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
The organic carbon normalized adsorption/desorption coefficient Koc (LogKoc) for the major compoents of Unoxol is 11 (Log Koc of 1.02) for 1,4-cyclohexanedicarboxdialdehyde (probably) and 17 (log Koc of 1.22) for 1,3-cyclohexanedicarboxdialdehyde (probably). The adsorption potential to soil is very low.
Executive summary:

The organic carbon normalized adsorption/desorption coefficient Koc (LogKoc) for the major compoents of Unoxol is 11 (Log Koc of 1.02) for 1,4-cyclohexanedicarboxdialdehydeand (probably) and 17 (log Koc of 1.22) for 1,3-cyclohexanedicarboxdialdehyde (probably). The adsorption potential to soil is very low.
