20 °C

Additional information

There is a clear trend of increasing octanol/water partition coefficient as carbon number increases in the alkenes. Based on read across from alkenes C16 - 18 the log Kow is greater than 8 (Roddie, 1995). Two QSARs (USEPA, 2008 and Karickhoff et al, 2009) indicate that the log Kow of this substance is expected to be greater than 10.
