Additional information

Potassium isoamyl xanthate (PIAX) is very soluble in water. The key value was obtained from a peer-reviewed handbook (Kirk-Othmer 2000). As the substance decomposes releasing water soluble degradation products in water, the supporting information on the most relevant degradation products (3-methyl-1-butanol, 1-pentanol and carbon disulphide) were used in CSA when relevant.
