Description of key information

BCF 95 - 321 L/kg (experimental data)

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

One study investigating the potential of metylcyclohexane (CAS No. 108-87-2) to accumulate in fish is available. In this study Cyprinus carpio was exposed to test substance concentrations of 10 and 100 µg/L, which resulted in BCF values of 95-321 L/kg and 134-237 L/kg, respectively (METI, 1986). These values are substantially lower than the threshold value of 2000 L/kg for bioaccumulating substances, according to the “Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment, R.11” (ECHA, 2014).
