Description of key information

Accumulation in organisms is not to be expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The measured values for logPow determined according to 92/69/EEC, A.8 were 0.21, 0.22 and -0.34 at pH 5, 7 and 9, respectively, indicating no potential for bioaccumulation of bronopol [BASF AG 2002]. The low bioaccumulation potential was confirmed by QSAR calculation (BCFWIN v3.01) resulting in a BCF of 3.162.

Based on the data given, bronopol is not likely to bioaccumulate in aquatic and terrestrial organisms.
