Additional information

As no experimental study was available, the partition coefficient of 2-PN was estimated using QSAR calculations. Three models, using different methodologies, were used, one was considered as valid, the two others not assignable. A total of 10 consistent results was obtained, within the range 0.96-1.96, which is significantly below the threshold of 4, with regard to classification criteria (long-term aquatic toxicity). The arithmetical mean value of these 10 results (1.39 +/-0.31) will be retained. It should also be noticed that this mean is consistent with the value of the valid QSAR (1.11 +/-0.48).
