Basis:
other: wet weight

Any other information on results incl. tables

The bioconcentration factor BCF of cumene was calculated using BCFBAF Program (v 3.00). The calculation yielded a BCF of 94.69 L/kg wet wt taking into account the measured log Kow of 3.5. Based on the result, a low potential for bioconcentration is to be expected.
