Molecular Weight: 226.28 g/mol
Smiles notation: c1(CC(OCc2ccccc2)=O)ccccc1
Substance type: Organic
Physical state: Liquid
Key result
Conc. based on:
test mat.
Remarks on result:
other: Insoluble
Benzyl phenylacetate was insoluble in water.
Executive summary:

Benzyl phenylacetate was insoluble in water.

Description of key information

Benzyl phenylacetate was insoluble in water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Water solubility:
18.53 mg/L
at the temperature of:
25 °C

Additional information

The estimated water solubility of benzyl phenylacetate at 25 degC was 18.53 mg/l, which implies that it is slighlty soluble in water.

But handbook data indicates that Benzyl phenylacetate was insoluble in water.
