Remarks:
- Title of report is not correct as no information on desorption is given. The subtitle (Estimation of the Adsorption coefficient….) displays the correct information. - Only five reference substances used instead of at least six as given in OECD 121 (sodium nitrate is used for the determination of the dead time) - Given concentration of reference substance phenanthrene stock solution is not accurate; however this does not have an impact on the final result. - Given concentration of test substance meta-Diisopropanolbenzene stock solution is not accurate; however this does not have an impact on the final result. - No information is given on duplicate analysis of the test substance and thus the repeatability cannot be judged. The reported Log Koc value of 1.36 is outside the reportable range of 1.5 – 5.0 as given in OECD 121. In that case the end result should be reported as Log Koc < 1.5 and Koc < 31.6. The reported results (Log Koc = 1.36 and Koc = 22.9) should be marked as extrapolated results.

DETERMINATION OF RETENTION TIMES
- Quantity of test substance introduced in the column: 5.0, 10.0 and 20 mg/L
- Quantity of reference substances: 10mg/L
- Intervals of calibration:

REPETITIONS
- Number of determinations: 2

EVALUATION
- Calculation of capacity factors k':
The capacity factors k’ will be calculated from the dead time to and retention times tR of the selected reference substances according to the following equation:
k' = (tR - t0)/t0
Where:
tR: HPLC retention time of test and reference substance (minutes)
t0: HPLC dead time (minutes)

- Calculation of retention times:
- Determination of the log Koc value:
The adsorption coefficient (Koc) is deduced from the capacity factor ( k’) using a calibration plot of log k’ versus log Koc of the selected reference compound.
Type:
Koc
Value:
22.9

Conclusions:
The results showed that Koc value of meta-Diisopropanolbenzene was 22.9. Therefore, the test substance meta-Diisopropanolbenzene has low adsorbability, according to “The guidelines for the hazard evaluation of new chemical substances (SEPA HJ/T 154-2004)”.
Executive summary:

Estimation of the Adsorption Coefficient (Koc) on Soil and on Sewage Sludge of meta-Diisopropanolbenzene using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) was conducted according to “The guidelines for the testing of chemicals” (HJ/T 153-2004), “The guidelines for the testing of chemicals” (SEPA,: China Environmental Sciences Press. 2004) and OECD Procedure 121, “Estimation of the Adsorption Coefficient (Koc) on Soil and on Sewage Sludge using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)” etc. The results showed that Kocvalue of meta-Diisopropanolbenzene was 22.9. Therefore, the test substance meta-Diisopropanolbenzene has low adsorbability, according to “The guidelines for the hazard evaluation of new chemical substances (SEPA HJ/T 154-2004)”.

Description of key information

The reported Log Koc value of 1.36 is outside the reportable range of 1.5 – 5.0 as given in OECD 121. In that case the end result should be reported as Log Koc < 1.5 and Koc < 31.6. The reported results (Log Koc = 1.36 and Koc = 22.9) should be marked as extrapolated results.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
