Materials and methods

Test guideline
no guideline followed
Principles of method if other than guideline:
WSKOW uses a "fragment constant" methodology to predict log P.  In a "fragment constant" method, a structure is divided into fragments (atom or larger functional groups) and coefficient values of each fragment or group are summed together to yield the log P estimate.  Further details on the methodology, accuracy and applicability domain are available in section entitled "overall remarks and attachement" using the QSAR Model Reporting Format.

The registered substance (CAS # 20566-35-2) involves the heating and subsequent reaction of Tetrabromophthalic Anhydride (TBPA) with Di-Ethylene Glycol (DEG) and Propylene Oxide (PO). The nature of the reagents involves the formation of a complex mixture of products with different combinations of these 3 reagents. Current, QSAR models cannot test UVCB substances. Therefore, the QSAR has been performed on the major product which is also the structure with the lowest molecular weight (1 unit of region of TBPA, 1 DEG and 1 PO). In terms of predicted toxicology, it can reasonably be assumed that the structure having the lowest molecular weight should be the most bioavailable. Based on this toxicity principle, QSAR analyses were performed using the SMILE structure of the smallest molecular weight structure which is also the major product of the mixture (identified at 26% area by HPLC).

In addition, same model has been ran with SMILE notation of 1 unit of TBPA, 1 DEG and with 2 or 3 PO (See below SMILE notation and parameters) and same order of magnitude was found for these 2 moldecules presenting 1 unit of TBPA. In contrast, when looking at the results for 2 units of TBPA, values are dramatically decreasing but parameters are outside of the model boundaries limits.
