Additional information

The BCF model within U.S. EPA's BCFBAF version 3.00 provides an estimated BCF based on the log Kow of -0.25 for hydrogen cyanide. This prediction may be applied, for screening purposes, to organisms in aquatic and terrestrial environments.

The review paper by Callahan et al. (1979) states "there is little potential for bioaccumulation of hydrogen cyanide."
