Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Log(Kow) for PPVE at 21.9°C was determined to be 4.0±0.05 (RSD=1.3%) under the conditions of this study. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The partition coefficient n-octanol/water of PPVE was determined according to U.S EPA guidance document OPPTS 830.7550 “Partition Coefficient (n-Octanol/Water), Shake Flask Method” and OECD 107 “Partition Coefficient (n-Octanol/water): Shake Flask Method”.

Duplicate samples of PPVE were prepared in each of the three octanol/water ratios (1:1, 1:2, and 2:1). Each test vessel was dosed by adding the appropriate volume of PPVE solution prepared in n-octanol to an appropriate volume of water. The entire volume of the two-phase system nearly filled each test vessel helping to minimize loss of material due to volatilization. All vials were then rotated 180° about their transverse axis for 100 times for five minutes; the test vessels were then centrifuged for 15 minutes at 1500 RPM to ensure a visibly clear separation of layers. The test vessels were left to separate overnight. Duplicate aliquots from the aqueous and n-octanol phases were carefully removed, diluted, and analyzed separately using GC/MS.

Log(Kow) for PPVE at 21.9°C was determined to be 4.0±0.05 (RSD=1.3%). The method uncertainty was calculated to be ±6.58%.

This is a guideline study conducted under GLP compliance. Therefore, it is considered reliable without restrictions and a key study.
