Principles of method if other than guideline:
The Soil Adsorption Coefficient was estimated with the program US EPA EPI Suite (v 4.10), program component KOCWIN (v2.00). The Soil Adsorption Coefficient Program KOCWIN estimates the soil adsorption coefficient (Koc) of organic compounds.  Koc can be defined as "the ratio of the amount of chemical adsorbed per unit weight of organic carbon (oc) in the soil or sediment to the concentration of the chemical in solution at equilibrium".
PCKOCWIN (version 2) estimates Koc with two separate estimation methodologies:
(1) estimation using first-order Molecular Connectivity Index (MCI)
(2) estimation using log Kow (octanol-water partition coefficient)

Computational methods:
PCKOCWIN (version 2) estimates Koc with two separate estimation methodologies:

(1) estimation using first-order Molecular Connectivity Index (MCI)
The equation derived by the non-polar (no correction factor) regression is:

 log Koc  =  0.5213 MCI  +  0.60

    (n = 69, r2 = 0.967, std dev = 0.247, avg dev = 0.199)

Adding in the correction factor regression yields the final MCI equation:

 log Koc  =  0.5213 MCI  +  0.60 + ΣPfN  

where ΣPfN is the summation of the products of all applicable correction factor coefficients from Appendix D multiplied by the number of times (N) that factor is counted for the structure.


(2) estimation using log Kow (octanol-water partition coefficient):
Separate equations correlating log Koc with log Kow were derived for nonpolar and polar compounds because it was statistically more accurate to do so than to use the approach taken with the MCI-based method.  The equation derived by the non-polar (no correction factor) regression is:

 log Koc  =  0.8679 Log Kow  -  0.0004

    (n = 68, r2 = 0.877, std dev = 0.478, avg dev = 0.371)

For the multiple-linear regression using correction factors, log Kow was included as an individual descriptor.  For compounds having correction factors, the equation is:

 log Koc  =  0.55313 Log Kow  +  0.9251 + ΣPfN  

where ΣPfN is the summation of the products of all applicable correction factor coefficients from Appendix D multiplied by the number of times (N) that factor is counted for the structure.

Executive summary:

The log Kocs of 1,2,3-Propanetricarboxylic acid, 2-hydroxy-, tris(C14-alkyl) ester and 1,2,3-Propanetricarboxylic acid, 2-hydroxy-, tris(C15 -alkyl) ester, representing Cosmacol ECL were estimated with the program US EPA EPI Suite (v 4.10), program component KOCWIN (v 2.00). Using a correlation based on molecular connectivity index, the log Koc were determined to be 10.706 (Koc = 1E+010 L/kg), resp. 11.488 (Koc = 1E+010 L/kg). Using a correlation based on Kow, the log Koc was 10.344 (Koc = 2.21E+010 L/kg), resp. 11.163 (Koc = 1.455E+011 L/kg). The high Koc values indicate a distinct potential of Cosmacol ECL to accumulate in soil and sediment.

The McCall classification scheme classifies the substances as immobile in soil (Koc > 5000).
