Qualifier:
according to guideline
Guideline:
EU Method C.19 (Estimation of the Adsorption Coefficient (KOC) on Soil and Sewage Sludge Using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC))
GLP compliance:

Type of method:
HPLC estimation method
Media:
other: calibration of HPLC column using standards
Test temperature:
The HPLC column is tempered at 25 °C.
Details on study design: HPLC method:
For the calibration the retention times of a series of substances with known adsorption coefficients were measured and a calibration graph was established. The adsorption coefficient of the test item was derived from its retention time and the calibration graph. Two series were injected. Each series included the calibration substances and the test item. The test item was injected in-between the series of the calibration substances.
Except for the detection wavelength the chromatographic conditions were the same for the determination of t0, the establishment of the calibration graph and the measurement of the test item.
The dead time marker and the calibration substances were dissolved in acetonitrile and diluted 0.1 mL to 1 mL in the mobile phase The item was dissolved in acetonitrile using the ultrasonic bath and diluted 0.1 mL to 1 mL with the mobile phase.

Temp.:

Details on results (HPLC method):
The retention time of the test item was compared with a calibration/regression curve obtained by the measurement of 7 standard chemicals. The retention time of the test item was approx. 9.1 min. Comparing with the regression, a log Koc of 10.1 was calculated. However, this log Koc was above the highest standard chemical which had a log Koc of 5.6. Therefore, a log Koc of > 5.6 is considered for the test item.

The adsorption coefficient of the test item was found to be: log Koc > 5.60
