Conclusions:
The partition coefficient (n-octanol/water) of test substance 1,4-Dichloro-2-nitrobenzene was determined as per the HPLC method
(OECD Guideline-117). The Log Pow value was determined to be 2.870± 0.000 dimensionless at 25°C.
Executive summary:

The partition Coefficient n-octanol/water of test chmeical 1,4-Dichloro-2-nitrobenzene was determined by the Reverse Phase High Performance Liquid Chromatographic method according to OECD Guideline No. 117 for testing of Chemicals. The reference substances were chosen according to estimated Pow range of the test substance and generalized calibration graph was prepared.

The reference substances were having Pow value ranging from 0.5 - 4.6.The Log Pow value was determined to be 2.870± 0.000 dimensionless at 25°C.

This value indicates that the substance is hydrophilic in nature.

Description of key information

The partition Coefficient n-octanol/water of test chmeical 1,4-Dichloro-2-nitrobenzene was determined by the Reverse Phase High Performance Liquid Chromatographic method according to OECD Guideline No. 117 for testing of Chemicals. The reference substances were chosen according to estimated Pow range of the test substance and generalized calibration graph was prepared. The reference substances were having Pow value ranging from 0.5 - 4.6.The Log Kow value was determined to be 2.870± 0.000 dimensionless at 25°C. This value indicates that the substance is hydrophilic in nature.

Additional information

The partition Coefficient n-octanol/water of test chmeical 1,4-Dichloro-2-nitrobenzene was determined by the Reverse Phase High Performance Liquid Chromatographic method according to OECD Guideline No. 117 for testing of Chemicals. The reference substances were chosen according to estimated Pow range of the test substance and generalized calibration graph was prepared. The reference substances were having Pow value ranging from 0.5 - 4.6.The Log Pow value was determined to be 2.870± 0.000 dimensionless at 25°C. This value indicates that the substance is hydrophilic in nature.

Study was conducted to determine the partition coefficient of 1,4-dichloro-2-nitrobenzene. The partition coefficient of chemical 1,4-dichloro-2-nitrobenzene is determine to be 3.03.

Thus based on the above both studies from experimental study report and other database it was consider that the substance is hydrophilic in nature.
