Additional information

N-Methylethanolamine is not expected to be accumulative in organisms due to the low substance specific logPow of -0.91. Therefore no experiments regarding aquatic or terrestrial bioaccumulation potential have to be conducted according to REACH regulation. For completeness, a QSAR calculation was performed with the help of the US-EPA computer tool EPIWIN (BCFBAFv3.00), resulting in an aquatic bioconcentration factor (BCF) of 3.162 L/kg wet weight (Chemservice S.A., 2010). This low BCF value confirms the low bioaccumulation potential of the test substance.
