Type of information:
Adequacy of study:
weight of evidence
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
results derived from a valid (Q)SAR model, but not (completely) falling into its applicability domain, with adequate and reliable documentation / justification
The substance is not fully compliant with the applicability domain of the model. However, this calculation is used in a weight of evidence approach, in accordance with REACh Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex XI General rules for adaptation of the standard testing regime set out in Annexes VII to X, 1.2. It is adequately documented and justified: the prediction is evaluated on the basis of the model performance on similar substances. For more details see section `overall remarks, attachments´.

Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

There are no experimental studies available assessing the adsorption/desorption of Isohexadecyl 12-[(1-oxooctadecyl)oxy]octadecanoate (CAS 97338-28-8). Therefore, the log Koc was calculated by (Q)SAR (EPI Suite v4.11) using the KOCWIN v2.00 model based on the Molecular Connectivity Index (MCI) and the log Kow method.

Since the substance only partially falls within the applicability domain of both models due to the high molecular weights of its constituents (> 665.02 g/mol) and high estimated log Kow (above the applicability domain limit values of 8.12/8.68 of the models, KOWWIN v1.68), the reported results are not fully reliable and should be treated with caution.

The estimation based on the MCI method resulted in log Koc values of 12.34 – 21.47 (25 °C), indicating a high potential for adsorption, which is in line with the high, estimated log Kow.
