Description of key information

Additional information


This substance has a limited potential to bioaccumulate (based on log Kows ranging from – 1.73 to +0.51@ 20oC), and predicted bioconcentration factors, log BCF = ca. 0.50 (EPIWIN/BCF Program).These values would suggest very low bioaccumulation


The estimated BCF of 3.162 L/kg wet-wt was measured by calculation from EPI SuiteTM v4.0 Program.

This is Exposure Assessment Tools and Models made from EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).

BCFBAF Program (v3.00) Results:



CHEM : Ethanol, 2- 2-(2-butoxyethoxy)ethoxy -

MOL FOR: C10 H22 O4

MOL WT : 206.28

--------------------------------- BCFBAF v3.00 --------------------------------

Summary Results:

Log BCF (regression-based estimate): 0.50 (BCF = 3.16 L/kg wet-wt)

Biotransformation Half-Life (days) : 0.0213 (normalized to 10 g fish)

Log BAF (Arnot-Gobas upper trophic): -0.03 (BAF = 0.944 L/kg wet-wt)

Log Kow (experimental): not available from database

Log Kow used by BCF estimates: 0.02

Equation Used to Make BCF estimate:

Log BCF = 0.50

Correction(s): Value

Correction Factors Not Used for Log Kow < 1

Estimated Log BCF = 0.500 (BCF = 3.162 L/kg wet-wt)
