Principles of method if other than guideline:
A Quantitative Structure-Property Relationship (QSPR) model was used to calculate the n-octanol/water partition coefficients of the consituents of the test item (a Natural Complex Substance). This QSPR model has been validated as a QSAR model to be compliant with the OECD recommendations for QSAR modeling (OECD, 2004) and predicts the endpoint value which would be expected when testing the substance under experimental conditions in a laboratory following the Guideline for Testing of Chemicals No. 107, "Partition Coeficient (n-octanol/water): Shake Flask Method" and No. 123 "Partition Coeficient (n-octanol/water): Slow Stirring Method”. The criterion predicted was the log KOW (also known as log POW).

The determination was performed using a fragment based approach in which the molecule is divided into large and small fragments and each fragment is related to a specific log KOW contribution which may be positive or negative. The final log KOW is determined by simple addition of the fragments. The predicted log KOW values have been validated against high quality experimental studies generally using the shake-flask method but slow-stir values have been used when available. The results are considered to be as accurate as those from a good quality OECD 107 or 123 study.

The partition coefficient of the test item was estimated using the recommended QSAR model iSafeRat®, based on Regression based-Fragment Approach’(RFA) method. The substance is within the applicability domain (MW, descriptors).

log Kow = range of constituents 2.2 -4.4.

The log KOW is predicted as follows:

Conclusions:
The Log Kow of 10 major constituents of the test item has been determined between 2.2-4.4 at 25°C.
Executive summary:

A Quantitative Structure-Property Relationship (QSPR) model was used to calculate the n octanol/water partition coefficients of the consituents of the test item that is a Natural Complex Substance. This QSPR model has been validated as a QSAR model to be compliant with the OECD recommendations for QSAR modeling (OECD, 2004) and predicts the endpoint value which would be expected when testing the substance under experimental conditions in a laboratory following the Guideline for Testing of Chemicals No. 107, "Partition Coeficient (n-octanol/water): Shake Flask Method" and No. 123 "Partition Coeficient (n-octanol/water): Slow Stirring Method”.

The constituents are within the applicability domain (MW, descriptors).

Finally the logKOW of 10 components (covering more than 70% of the composition of the substance) has been determined to be between 2.2 and 4.4 at 25°C.

The log KOW was predicted as follows:

Considering that as a UVCB with constituents of different log KOW, the global logKOW of the test item will depend on the composition and the loading rate (with varying ratio of constituents in the dissolved phase), we considered the logKOW of the 10 components ranging between 2.2 and 4.4 mg/L and no single key value was retained (nor calculated weighted logKOW nor worst-case).
