Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Key result
log Pow
Partition coefficient:
ca. -4.29
40.1 °C
ca. 10.78
Details on results:
The Log Pow of the test item was calculated using the decimal logarithm of the capacity factor (k). Log Pow was calculated using extrapolation of regression line: log Pow was -4.29.
Repeatability: The values of log Pow derived from individual measurements are within a range of 0.1 log unit, so within the criteria of the OECD 117 guideline.

Deviation to the study plan:

There is no reference substance with a retention time below the test item retention time. The Log Pow measured with an extrapolation of the regression is < 0 (-4.29). Or in the § 8 « APPLICABILITY » of the Study plan (in accordance with the OECD guideline 117) it is clearly indicated: « The HPLC method covers log Pow in the range of 0 to 6. ». The above listed deviation has a major impact on the study conclusion. The Log Pow is estimated < 0 so it is not in the applicability range 0 to 6.

The estimated Partition Coefficient (Pow) logarithm of 2-aminoethanol hydrobromide is < 0.
An extrapolation of the regression line estimates that the Partition Coefficient (Pow) logarithm is about -4.29. But it is important to note that as described in the guideline OECD 117 §4: “the HPLC method covers log Pow in the range of 0 to 6”. I.e. Deviation n°1.
