Details on results:
- In the HPLC chromatograms of the substance, one large peak and 3 smaller peaks were observed. No peaks were observed after approx. 7.7 minutes.
- The t0 was determined to be 1.17 minutes (mean of 2 measurements: 1.17 an 1.17)
- Linear regression analysis: Slope: 0.337; Intercept: -0.821; Correlation coefficient: 0.988 (n=6)
- No substance related peaks were observed in the HPLC chromatograms of the blank test solution and of the blank

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The log Kow's for 4 components (constituents/impurities) of KY-MA are between 2.7 and 4.6, determined with the HPLC method in accordance with OECD 117 (1989) and according to GLP principles. The log Kow of a main component is 3.1 at 22.0 ± 0.5 degrees Celsius.
