Description of key information

Using the weight of evidence approach based on data available for the 2 read-across chemicals; the bio-accumulation potential of sodium 2-(2-dodecyloxyethoxy) ethyl sulphate is expected to be low. This is owing to the fact that the 2 read across chemicals sodium 2-[2-[2-(dodecyloxy)ethoxy]ethoxy]ethyl sulphate & sodium lauryl ether sulphate; belonging to the same family of chemicals generally known as alcohol ethoxy sulphates are also likely to exhibit low bio-accumulation potential, based upon the information related to the absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME). 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Bioaccumulation potential:
low bioaccumulation potential

Additional information

The bio-concentration factor (BCF) predicted value of the target chemicalsodium 2-(2-dodecyloxyethoxy) ethyl sulphate is 71. This value is much below the threshold of 2000 indicating low bio-accumulation characteristic. Also, using the read-across approach; the bio-accumulation potential of sodium 2-(2-dodecyloxyethoxy) ethyl sulphate is expected to be low.This is owing to the fact that the 2 read across chemicalssodium 2-[2-[2-(dodecyloxy)ethoxy]ethoxy]ethyl sulphate & sodium lauryl ether sulphate; belonging to the same family of chemicals generally known as alcohol ethoxy sulphates are also likely to exhibit low bio-accumulation potential.
