Description of key information

The bioconcentration factor (BCF) of neryl acetate was estimated by three QSAR models:

- BCFBAF v3.01 module of EPI suite (v4.0) - Regression-based estimate

- BCF-BAF v3.01 module of EPI suite (v4.0) (assuming no biotransformation) - Arnot-Gobas upper trophic level

- A model described in Technical Guidance Risk Assessment (European Chemicals Bureau, 2003) - Part II, Chapter 3.8, equation (74) p. 126.

Neryl acetate exhibits an estimated fish BCF of 454 L/kg (geometric mean of the three QSAR results: 196.3 L/kg, 989.2 L/kg, 481.9 L/kg).
