Additional information

Since no reliable adsorption tests are available for C10-12AS Na (CAS 85049-86-1), in accordance to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 Annex XI, 1.5 a read-across to other structurally related category members was conducted. Read-across data from C10AS Na (CAS 142-87-0) and C12AS Na (CAS 151-21-3) were used.

In the publication of Marchesi et al. (1991), sediment sorption data for several alkyl sulfates with different carbon chain lengths are presented. The determined Koc values are:

- for C10AS Na (CAS 142-87-0) between 122 and 178 which corresponds to log Koc values in the range of 2.09 and 2.25.

- for C12AS Na (CAS 151-21-3) between 316 and 446, which corresponds to log Koc values in the range of 2.5 and 2.65.

Due to structural and property similarities with the tested category members these results apply also to C10-12AS Na (CAS 85049-86-1). The Koc range is between 122 and 446 corresponding to the log Koc range between 2.09 and 2.65. Adsorption of the substance to soil or sediment is therefore low. For the PNEC sediment and soil derivation according to the equilibrium partitioning method (EPM), the lower boundary of the range (Koc = 122) was taken into account, since this value represents the worst case scenario for the chemical safety assessment.
