Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.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

Type of information:
other: read across
Adequacy of study:
supporting study
Study period:
July 30, 2015
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
guideline study
Study conducted according to internationally accepted testing guidelines. Although the values recorded are outside of the applicability domain for the test method, the rusults can be considered as reliable and representative for the tested substance. The study outcomes are indicative of a high affinity with the water phase, respect than the octanol one.
according to guideline
OECD Guideline 107 (Partition Coefficient (n-octanol / water), Shake Flask Method)

At 96 hours, the values reached equilibrium, therefore this value was considered for final calculations making duplicate determinations of every ratio o/w.

Executive summary:

Partition coefficient was determined by means of shake flask method as per recommendations of OECD 107. Partition coefficient (P) is defined as the ratio of the equilibrium concentrations of a dissolved substance in a two-phase system consisting in two largely immiscible solvents.

Study conducted at 20 °C and at pH of 7.68.

Average Pow: 0.0029 (SD: 0.0004)

Average log Pow: -2.525 (SD: 0.030)


log Pow: -2.525 at 20 °C and at pH of 7.68

Description of key information

Average log Pow: -2.5250, at 20 °C and pH 7.68

Key value for chemical safety assessment
