Details on results:
The test item was determined to be essentially miscible in water. Complete solubility was observed for aqueous solutions prepared at 5.0% w/w and all sample solutions evaluated at ≥25.0% w/w. Additional samples prepared within this region of immiscibility confirmed that the test item was not miscible with water within the concentration range of 7.49% w/w to 20.2% w/w. The water solubility of the test item in this region was therefore addressed analytically at two different initial nominal saturation loading rates of 10% w/w and 20% w/w. This evaluation indicated that the major components of the test item remained highly solubilized even when a visible excess was observed.
On completion of the re-equilibration period, the saturated samples prepared for analytical evaluation were straw colored, clear solutions with excess test item present on the surface of each sample. The solutions were centrifuged and filtered following removal from the static waterbath and exclusion of this excess undissolved test item was visually confirmed prior to diluting for analysis.
It was noted that the solution matrix blanks contained significant responses at the appropriate retention times of interest on analysis. This was attributed to the “sticky” nature of salts on analytical instrumentation. However this was considered not to impact on the accuracy of the quantification. This was since through the use of calibration curves, blank responses are automatically corrected for through displacement of the y axis intercept from the origin and also as all definitively quantified concentrations were obtained by interpolation from within the valid standard concentration range analyzed for the assay.

The test item was determined to be essentially miscible in water. Complete solubility was observed for aqueous solutions prepared at 5.0% w/w and all sample solutions evaluated at ≥25.0% w/w. Analysis of visibly saturated solutions prepared at two different initial nominal loading rates in the region of immiscibility resulted in data as summarized in the following table; indicating that the major components of the test item remained highly solubilized even when a visible excess was observed. All evaluations were performed at a test temperature of 20.0 ± 0.5 °C.

Conclusions:
The test item was determined to be essentially miscible in water. Complete solubility was observed for aqueous solutions prepared at 5.0% w/w and all sample solutions evaluated at ≥25.0% w/w. Analysis of visibly saturated solutions prepared at two different initial nominal loading rates in the region of immiscibility resulted in data as summarized in the following table; indicating that the major components of the test item remained highly solubilized even when a visible excess was observed. All evaluations were performed at a test temperature of 20.0 ± 0.5 °C.
