Description of key information

The water solubility of (Z)-octadec-9-enol is 0.042 mg/L at 25°C. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
0.042 mg/L
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

A predicted water solubility value of 0.042 mg/l at 25°C was determined for the substance with the use of a validated QSAR estimation method. The result is considered to be reliable.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

As chain length increases, water solubility decreases, because the free energy required for a molecule to dissolve becomes less favourable for larger molecules.
