Conclusions:
The water solubility determination of test item 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) was done as per the OECD guideline 105 by spectrophotometric analytical method as per OECD 101. The solubility of test chemical 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) in water was determine to be 4331.5 mg/L at 30°C.Thus the test chemical 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) is considered to be soluble.
Executive summary:

The water solubility determination of test item 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) was done as per the OECD guideline 105 by spectrophotometric analytical method as per OECD 101. The solubility of test chemical 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) in water was determine to be 4331.5 mg/L at 30°C.Thus the test chemical 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) is considered to be soluble.

Additional information

Based on the key study from study report,the water solubility determination of test item 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) was done as per the OECD guideline 105 by spectrophotometric analytical method as per OECD 101. The solubility of test chemical 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) in water was determine to be 4331.5 mg/L at 30°C.Thus the test chemical 2,3-dimethylphenol (526-75-0) is considered to be soluble.

The water solubility of 2,3-dimethyl phenol was determined at various temperatures by Shake flask-UV method.The experimental  water solubility of 2,3,- dimethylphenol at 20 deg C was 3930 mg/l and 40000 mg/l at 150 deg C.

Also data from various authoritative databases and handbooks indicate that the experimental water solubility of 2,3,- dimethylphenol at 25 deg C was lies between 4570 -4600 mg/l.

These values suggest that 2,3 -dimethyl phenol is soluble in water.
