4.   Toxicokinetic behaviour:

Since no toxicokinetic studies are available for DOP-ITS the assessment of the toxicokinetic behavior is based on the physico-chemical properties of the substance.


a)    Absorption


Oral absorption:


The slightly water soluble substance DOP-ITS will dissolve in the gastrointestinal fluids to a limited degree.

Its high molecular weight, the moderate water solubility and the moderate log Pow of < 0.3 to 3.324 do not favor its absorption in the gastrointestinal tract by passive diffusion.

Since the molecular weight is above 600 Dalton the substance may not be taken up by passing through aqueous pores of the epithelial barrier. Paracellular permeability is related to the pores in the epithelial barrier. The paracellular pathway accepts molecules with molecular mass <600 Da.

Therefore, for evaluation of DOP-ITS in the chemical safety assessment, the oral absorption is set at 10 %.

The results of the toxicity studies with DOP-ITS do not provide any reason to deviate from this proposed degree of oral absorption.


Dermal absorption:


According to the criteria given in the ECHA guidance document “Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment Chapter R.7c: Endpoint specific guidance”,November 2012 (version 1.1) 10 % dermal absorption will be considered in case MW > 500 g/Mol and log Pow <-1 and >4, otherwise 100 % dermal absorption is assumed.


In consequence, 10 % dermal absorption is proposed for DOP-ITS.


Respiratory absorption:

Deposition pattern for dusts depends on the particle sizes of the substance to be inhaled. In general, particles having an aerodynamic diameter of greater than 10 µm are deposited in the nasopharyngeal region. Particles smaller than 10 µm are capable for reaching the alveolar region of the respiratory tract.

Since DOP-ITS is a highly viscous semi-solid substance no exposure can be assumed.


b)   Distribution


After absorption DOP-ITS is expected not to distribute easily throughout the body based on its high molecular weight, the log Pow > 0 (some lipophilicity) and the low water solubility.


Since the log Pow is < 0.3 to 3.324, DOP-ITS can also distribute into cells to a minor extent so that the intracellular concentration may be higher than the extracellular concentration, particularly in fatty tissues.


Since the log Pow of DOP-ITS is < 4 the substance is not expected to accumulate within the body.


c)    Metabolism


Once absorbed, the mammalian organism may metabolize the substance DOP-ITS by hydroxylation of appropriate carbon and nitrogen atoms which may be followed by conjugation.


Potential metabolites of the monomeric UVCB component were simulated with the QSAR-toolbox of the OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) available at: (see above)

No further assessment of the biological relevance of the theoretically derived metabolites is possible due to lack of information.
