HPLC method

Details on study design: HPLC method:
EQUIPMENT
- Apparatus: Hypersil BDS-CN
- Type: Column
- Type, material and dimension of analytical (guard) column: solid-phase = cyanopropyl chemically bound resin on silica basis; 150 x 4.6 (I.D.) mm; dp = 5 um
- Detection system: spectrophotometric (UV at wavelength 210 nm)

MOBILE PHASES
- Type: Eluent 55/45 methanol (HPLC-grade)/Milli-Q water
- Experiments with additives carried out on separate columns: no
- Solutes for dissolving test and reference substances: reference substance: methanol; test substance: DMSO

DETERMINATION OF DEAD TIME
- Method: by inert substances which are not retained by the column (5.2 g/L formamide in methanol diluted x10)

REFERENCE SUBSTANCES
- Identity:
Phenol (99%, Acros organics, Geel, Belgium)
N,N-dimethylbenzamide (98%, Acros organics, Geel, Belgium)
Methylbenzoate (99%, Acros organics, Geel, Belgium)
3,5-Dinitrobenzamide (97%, Acros organics, Geel, Belgium)
Naphthalene (99%, Acros organics, Geel, Belgium)
Mercaptodimethur (98.5%, Dr. Ehrenstorfer, Augsburg, Germany)
Fenthion (96%, Riedel-de Haen, Seelze, Germany)
Phenantrene (>98%, Acros organics, Geel, Belgium)
2,4-DDT (98%, Dr. Ehrenstorfer, Augsburg, Germany)

DETERMINATION OF RETENTION TIMES
- Quantity of test substance introduced in the column: 0.10 µg.
- Quantity of reference substances introduced in the column: 0.11 µg to 0.63 µg.

EVALUATION
- Calculation of capacity factors k': k'= (tr -t0)/t0 where t0 = retention time of unretarded component; tr = retention time of the substance
- Determination of the log Koc value: log k'= a * log Koc + b

Results: HPLC method

Details on results (HPLC method):
- Retention times of reference substances used for calibration: Mean values =
Phenol = 2.33
N, N-dimethylbenzamide = 2.13
Methylbenzoate = 2.49
3,5-Dinitrobenzamide = 2.77
Naphtalene = 3.27
Mercaptodimethur = 3.08

- Note: According to the OECD 121 guideline, these reference substances are for Koc soil estimation
- Details of fitted regression line (log k' vs. log Koc): y = 0.318x - 1.33 (r = 0.94, n = 9)
- Average retention data for test substance: There were five peaks: Peak 1: 3.13 min., Peak 2: 3.31 min., Peak 3: 3.80 min., Peak 4: 4.26 min., Peak 5 (major peak): 5.28 min.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
The log Kocs for all components of KY-ET were between 2.94 and 4.33. The main component (73%) showed a log Koc of 4.33.
Executive summary:

A adsorption-desorption study was performed according to OECD 121. There were no significant deviations impinging the reliability of the study. The log Koc was determined for all test substance peaks (5) and was between 2.94 and 4.33. The log Koc of the main component (73%) was 4.33.
