Any other information on results incl. tables

The soil and sediment partition coefficient (log Koc) of PPVE was calculated using the equation from European Chemicals Bureau: Technical Guidance Document on Risk Assessment, Chapter 4, 'Predominantly hydrophobics". The log Koc is given as: Log koc = 0.81 log Pow + 0.10.

From the experimentally determined log Kow value of 4.0, the log Koc (soil and sediment partition coefficient) of PPVE is calculated to be 3.34.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
The soil and sediment partition coefficient (log Koc) of PPVE was calculated to be 3.34 using the equation from European Chemicals Bureau: Technical Guidance Document on Risk Assessment, Chapter 4, 'Predominantly hydrophobics".
Executive summary:

The adsorption coefficient (Koc) of the test substance was attempted using OECD 121: "Estimation of the Adsorption Coefficient (Koc) on Soil and on Sewage Sludge using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC)” method.

The test substance was dissolved in methanol and 55/45 (v/v) methanol/0.01M phosphate buffer pH 7 at nominal concentrations of 102 - 775 mg/l. The adsorption coefficient (Koc) of the test substance was determined using high performance liquid chromatography with UV detection (HPLC-UV). None of the test substance solutions showed a response using the HPLC-UV method (data not shown). The method was checked by analysis of a reference solution of 4,4’-DDT (CAS# 50-29-3), which had a retention time of 5.8 minutes.

Based on the results, it was concluded that it was not possible to determine the Koc of the test substance using the HPLC method. Alternatively, the Koc and log Koc values were calculated using a quantitative structure activity relationship (QSAR).

The soil and sediment partition coefficient (log Koc) of PPVE was calculated using the equation from European Chemicals Bureau: Technical Guidance Document on Risk Assessment, Chapter 4, 'Predominantly hydrophobics". The log Koc is given as: Log koc = 0.81 log Pow + 0.10. From the experimentally determined log Kow value of 4.0, the log Koc (soil and sediment partition coefficient) of PPVE is calculated to be 3.34.

This data was calculated according to accepted Technical Quidance document, it is accepable with restriction and a key study.
