Reference
Endpoint:
bioaccumulation in aquatic species: fish
Type of information:
(Q)SAR
Adequacy of study:
key study
Reliability:
2 (reliable with restrictions)
Rationale for reliability incl. deficiencies:
results derived from a valid (Q)SAR model and falling into its applicability domain, with adequate and reliable documentation / justification
Justification for type of information:
Calculated using the BCF Program BCFBAF v.3.01 included in the Estimation Programs Interface (EPI)-Suite version 4.11, based on the octanol-water coefficient (log Kow) of the substance.
Principles of method if other than guideline:
Calculated with BCF Program BCFBAF v.3.01 included in the Estimation Programs Interface (EPI)-Suite. The estimation methodology is based on the chemical structure of an organic compound and its log octanol-water partition coefficient (log Kow). Depending on chemical structure, structural correction factors are applied.
GLP compliance:
no
Radiolabelling:
no
Type:
BCF
Value:
11.6 L/kg
Basis:
other: calculation
Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Conclusions:
Calculation using the BCF Program BCFBAF v.3.01 included in the Estimation Programs Interface (EPI)-Suite, based on the log Kow of the substance, gave a BCF value of 11.6 (log BCF = 1.066). The substance is hence not likely to accumulate in aquatic biota.
Executive summary:

Calculation using the BCF Program BCFBAF v.3.01 included in the Estimation Programs Interface (EPI)-Suite, based on the log Kow of the substance, gave a BCF value of 11.6 (log BCF = 1.066). The substance is hence not likely to accumulate in aquatic biota.
