Materials and methods

Test guideline
other: REACH guidance on QSARs Chapter R.6 , May 2008
Principles of method if other than guideline:
The computer program WSKOW v1.42 (EPIWIN software by US-EPA) estimates as first step the octanol-water partition coefficient and based on this value, the water solubility of the chemical is estimated. If relevant, different correction factors are utilized in this procedure.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Interpretation of results (migrated information): very soluble (> 10000 mg/L)
The study report describes a scientifically accepted calculation method for the water solubility prediction using the US-EPA software WSkOW v1.42. No GLP criteria are applicable for the usage of this tool and the QSAR estimation is easily repeatable.
Executive summary:

The water solubility of the substance 2-Pyridineethanol was determined by the computer program WSKOW v1.42 (EPIWIN software) by US-EPA . As first step, the program calculates the octanol-water partition coefficient and predicts subsequently the water solubility of the chemical compound. If relevant, the software utilizes different correction factors in these predictions.

For the chemical a water solubility of 1e+006 mg/L was calculated based on an experimental logPow of 0.12 (Refer : HANSCH,C ET AL. (1995)) . Correction factors of 0.510 for Alcohol, aliphatic and 1.300 for Pyridine, alkyl were presented. Due to this estimation the substance is regarded to be very soluble in water.
