Description of key information

No reliable experimental study was identified for 1,3,5-trimethylbenzene, therefore Koc and Log Koc were calculated, using the Log Kow of 3.42 in accordance with the method defined in the TGD (2003), to be 741.65 and 2.87 respectively. Koc and log Koc values of 472 and 2.67 respectively, reported in USEPA report (1994), have an unknown reliability but are considered suitable as a supporting study.

1,3,5-trimethylbenzene has a Henry's Law Constant of 781 Pa. m3/mol. No information on the methods used is available. However, this information is taken from a reliable peer reviewed handbook (Lide 2008) and is considered reliable and suitable for use for this endpoint. The supporting study gives a result of 798 Pa.m3/mol, calculated from the water solubility and vapour pressure.
