Additional information

A weight of evidence approach has been used as only secondary source data and QSARs are available. Results are taken from the WHO IPCS International Chemical Safety Cards (WHO, 1999). No information on the primary source of these data or the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from an internationally peer-reviewed chemical safety card and can be considered reliable and suitable for use as the key study for this endpoint. The use of a QSAR to predict the log Kow is an appropriate technique and is suitable as a supporting study. The substance falls within the applicability domain of the model. The log Kow determined this way is 0.86 and 0.9191.
