Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Based on REACH regulation annex VIII column 2 (specific rules for adaptation from column 1) the study need not be conducted if based on the physicochemical properties the substance can be expected to have a low potential for adsorption (e.g. the substance has a low octanol water partition coefficient); logKow is 0.8.

Nevertheless note that Malachite Green (MG) is a cationic dye and cations generally adsorb more strongly to organic carbon and clay than their neutral counterparts.

Koc was however estimated using calculation software EpiSuite 4.1, for completeness sake.

For a more realistic prevision pattern the values of MG kow, melting point, water solubility were added.
