Aquatic Bioaccumulation

Bioaccumulation was assessed for representative constituents of the substance using the US EPA's BCFBAF model (v.4.11). BCF values were determined for each representative constituent using both regression-based estimates and Arnot-Gobas (upper trophic) estimates and ranged from 0.9546 to 17740 L/kg. All predicted BCF values were below the bioaccumulation screening value of 2000 based on regression-based estimates and all except for C9 alkanes and alkenes were below 2000 based on Arnot-Gobas estimates.

Terrestrial bioaccumulation

Reason: technically not feasible

Justification: Substance is a UVCB substance. Standard tests for this endpoint are intended for single constituent substances and are not appropriate for this UVCB substance.
