Description of key information

Mono-, and di-(sec-hexadecyl)naphthalene has the potential to adsorb to organic matter in sediment.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Koc at 20 °C:
26 915 348

Additional information

The sediment partition coefficient (Koc) was calculated using the US EPA EPI Suite program (v 3.12)(US EPA 2000). Mono-, and di-(sec-hexadecyl)naphthalene has a calculated Log Koc value of 7.43. Therefore, the study substance and its main components have the potential to significantly sorb to organic matter in sediment.

[LogKoc: 7.43]
