Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The study report describes a scientifically accepted calculation method for the biodegradability prediction using the US-EPA software HENRYWIN v3.20 .No GLP criteria are applicable for the usage of this tool and the QSAR estimation is easily repeatable.
Executive summary:

The prediction for the distribution between aqueous solution and air for the test substance was determined by the computer program HENRYWIN v3.20 (EPIWIN software) by US-EPA . Henry´s law states that the solubility of a gas in a liquid solution at a constant temperature will be proportional to the partial pressure of the gas which is above the solution (Henry, W., 1803). Sometimes, the term “air/water partition coefficient” refers to the dimensionless Henry´s law constant (HLC) and therefore describes the ration of the equilibrium concentration of a dissolved substance in air and water.

The program calculates the Henry´s Law Constant based on the Bond Method of 0.0000383 Pa*m³/mol (3.83E-005 Pa*m³/mol) at an ambient temperature of 25 °C. The Group Method shows a value of 0.0000149 Pa*m³/mol (1.49E-005 Pa*m³/mol) at an ambient temperature of 25 °C as result .
