salicylate is readily biodegradable and therefore has no potential to
Using the logKow figure determined by Rudio
(1996) of 5.5, a BCF was derived using the equation described in the
Handbook of Chemical Property Estimation Methods.The Log BCF was
estimated to be 3.95 (BCF = 8913).
Due to the readily biodegradable nature of
hexyl salicylate, Rudio (1995), exposure to the aquatic environment will
be limited. Its readily biodegradable nature will also mean that the BCF
will be lower than that estimated from the Log Kow as the substance is
expected to be metabolised by aquatic organisms.
Further calculations were performed using
the BCFBAF model within the EPA's Epiweb program. This uses a slightly
different formula to estimate BCF to that described in the handbook of
calculations resulting in an estimated BCF of 1977. In addition to this,
the model estimates the biotransformation half-life as 0.24 days and
uses this to refine the BCF estimates. These additional calculations
estimate Log BCF in the range 1.99 to 2.17 (BCF = 98 to 148).
On the basis of the hazard assessment,
hexyl salicylate is not expected to be carcinogenic, mutagenic or a
reproductive toxicant and is not classified as T, R48, or Xn, R48
according to Directive 67/548/EEC.
