Estimating concentration of organic compound in octanol
« on: February 20, 2013, 11:57:34 AM »

In a Kow experiment, I got the concentration of an organic compound in the water phase via a UV spectrophotometer (via a calibration curve). We have then been asked to estimate the concentration of the organic compound in the octanol phase so we can workout a value for Kow. Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

Should you have been given the starting concentration or mass?
