Additional information

The n-octanol-water partition coefficient was determined using the HPLC method of EU Method A.8 and OECD Method 117. The substance contains no dissociating functional groups, testing was therefore carried out at neutral pH. The partition coefficient of the substance was determined to be Pow = 2690 and log Pow = 3.43 at 30 °C and pH 7. Substances having a log Pow greater than 3 are regarded as having the potential to bioaccumulate in the environment.
