Additional information

Multiple sources provide strong supporting evidence that the substance triethylene glycol butyl etheri s fully miscible in water at relevant environmental temperatures. A reliable QSAR indicates that the target substance 3,6,9,12-tetraoxahexadecan-1-ol is 'more' water soluble than triethylene glycol butyl ether. This provides support for the conclusion that 3,6,9,12-tetraoxahexadecan-1-ol is also fully water miscible. The key parameter selected is equivalent to the density of the substance at the prevailing temperature. Note that the substance solubility is not expected to vary significantly with pH or temperature.
