Description of key information

BCF = 2.6 (pH 2.5) (Sorbic acid)
BCF = 0.007 (pH 6.5) (Sorbic acid)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
0.007 dimensionless

Additional information

The calculation of the BCF of Sorbic acid was conducted according to the EU TGD, using the log Pow. At a pH of 2.5, the BCF is 2.6, and at a ph of 6.5 it is 0.007.
