Additional information

Data from an OECD 305C guideline study on bioaccumulation, conducted in carp at 0.4 and 0.04 mg substance/L, demonstrated limited or no potential for1,2-dichloropropaneto bioaccumulate (BCF = 0.5-7; MITI, 1992). The published data present only limited methodological details. This low/no potential for bioaccumulation is supported by a calculated BCF of 1.29 (Howard, 1990; McKayet al., 1993).
