Description of key information

Appearance:

Chemical tridecan-1-ol is physically appear as a organic white solid with pleasant odour.

Melting point:

Melting point value for tridecan-1-ol is determine to be  31°C.

Boiling Point:

Boiling point of the substance tridecan-1-ol was determine  to be 274°C

Density:

Density of the substance tridecan-1-ol was determine to be 0.845 g/cm3 at temperature 20°C.

Particle size distribution:

The particle size distribution of tridecan-1 -ol was determined by granulometric analysis with rotap sieve shaker. The particle size distribution was determined to be in the range of 150 micron to 53 micron.

Vapour pressure:

Vapour pressure of chemical tridecan-1-ol is determine to be 0.0099 kPa at temperature 101 Deg C & 101.324 kPa at temperature 280.45 Deg C.

Partition coefficient:

Based on the available data from authoritative database,the partition coefficient (log Pow) value of the substance 1-Tridecanol was determined to be 5.82. Based on the experimental value, chemical 1-Tridecanol can be considered to be hydrophobic in nature.

Water solubility:

Water solubility value for the substance tridecan-1-ol is determine to be 100 mg/L at 20 deg C, indicating that test substance is slightly soluble in water.

Surface tension:

In accordance with column 2 of Annex VII of the REACH regulation, the study need only be conducted if surface activity is a desired property of the chemical. The chemical tridecan-1-ol is an advanced intermediate for the manufacture of chemicals. For this use, surface activity is not an important property. Hence this study was considered for waiver.

Flash point:

Flash point of the substance tridecan-1-ol was determine to be 121.11°C by Cleveland open cup method.

Auto flammability:

Auto flammability of tridecan-1-ol is determine to be 260 Deg C.

Flammability:

tridecan-1-ol does not indicate any ignition when the flame of bunsen burner having temperature of approximately 950°C is brought in contact with it. Thus it can be concluded that tridecan-1-ol is not flammable at high temperature. However since such high temperatures are not found under normal circumstances of transportation and use, thus tridecan-1-ol was considered non-flammable.

Explosiveness:

In accordance with column 2 of Annex VII of the REACH regulation, the study does not need to be conducted since there are no chemical groups associated with explosive properties present in the molecule of tridecan-1-ol. Thus, this end point was considered for waiver and the chemical is considered to be "Non explosive".

Oxidizing properties:

In accordance with column 2 of Annex VII of the REACH regulation, the substance tridecan-1-ol is incapable of reacting exothermically with combustible materials on the basis of the chemical structure. It is an organic substance containing oxygen but no halogen atom and these elements are not chemically bonded to nitrogen or oxygen. Thus, the chemcial is likely to be "Non-oxidising".

From other reliable sources & authorative database density of the substance tridecan-1-ol was determine to be 0.8223 g/cm3 at temperature 31 deg C.

Particle size distribution:

The particle size distribution of tridecan-1 -ol was determined by granulometric analysis with rotap sieve shaker. The particle size distribution was determined to be in the range of 150 micron to 53 micron.

Vapour pressure:

Vapour pressure of chemical tridecan-1-ol is determine to be 0.0099 kPa at temperature 101 Deg C & 101.324 kPa at temperature 280.45 Deg C.

Partition coefficient:

Based on the available data in a key study from authoritative database, the partition coefficient (log Pow) value of the substance 1-Tridecanol was determined to be 5.82.

In a supportingstudy from publication and secondary source,the partition coefficient (log Pow) value of the substance 1-Tridecanol was determined to be 5.51.

Another supporting study from handbook, authoritative and modelling databases,the partition coefficient (log Pow) value of the substance 1-Tridecanol was estimated to be 5.26.

In an additional study from peer reviewed journal, authoritative database and secondary source indicates that the partition coefficient (log Pow) value of the substance 1-Tridecanol was estimated to be 5.82.

Thus, on the basis of available information, the logKow value of the chemical 1-Tridecanol was determined to be ranges from 5.26 to5.82, respectively. On the basis of this value, chemical 1-Tridecanol can be considered to be hydrophobic in nature.
