As no single computational model could be identified which would fit completely to the substance, the log Koc of the substance was calculated as the arithmetic mean of the data generated by two individual QSAR approaches. The QSAR model using the log Kow as input parameter was based on the experimentally derived log Kow of 1.44.

Conclusions:
The reliable (Q)SAR prediction resulted in a low potential of the substance for adsorption to organic soil and sediment particles (log Koc: 1.31 - 1.49; arithmetic mean: 1.4).

Description of key information

As no single computational model could be identified which would fit completely to the substance, the log Koc of the substance was calculated as the arithmetic mean of the data generated by two individual (Q)SAR approaches. The log Koc was estimated by (Q)SAR calculations to be 1.49 (based on log Kow) and 1.31 (MCI). The (Q)SAR model using the log Kow as input parameter was based on the experimentally derived log Kow of 1.44. A mean log Koc of 1.4 with a corresponding Koc of 25.64 L/kg was calculated indicating a negligible adsorption to soil and sediment particles.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No experimental studies investigating the adsorption/desorption potential of the substance are available. Therefore, the log Koc was calculated using KOCWIN v2.00 based on the Molecular Connectivity Index (MCI) and based on the measured log Kow. Calculations resulted in log Koc values of 1.31 (MCI) and 1.49 (estimation based on log Pow). A mean log Koc of 1.4 was calculated, indicating that the substance has a negligible adsorption to organic soil and sediment particles.
