Description of key information

According to OECD105 study the water solubility of Penta-PSCA is 0.23 g/L at 20°C.
According to ISO 4311 the critical micelle concentration of Penta-PSCA is 0.23 ± 0.11 g/L at 20°C. The critical micelle concentration is the appropriate parameter describing water solubility of surface active materials.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:

Additional information

The critical micelle concentration of the test item was determined from a plot of surface tension versus concentration of the test item in water in a well reported study according to national testing guideline DIN ISO 4311.

Surfactants show a complex solubility behaviour due to aggregation. The monomer concentration, and hence the thermodynamic activity, reaches a limiting value at the crirical micelle concentration. It remains approximately constant as the total concentration is further increased. For ecotoxicological models requiring a solubility value, the critical micelle concentration is therefore the appropriate parameter describing water solubility of surface active materials.

According to ISO 4311 the critical micelle concentration of Penta-PSCA is 0.23 ± 0.11 g/L at 20°C.
