Description of key information

Considering the various data of the read-across chemicals (benzophenones) to the target chemical sulisobenzone (benzophenone-4); it can be concluded that sulisobenzone is likely to have low bio-accumulation potential. His is considering the fact that benzophenones are normally bio-transformed into various metabolites and excreted through the urine. Also, animals did not retain measurable amounts of Benzophenone-12 even when the compound was ingested over a long period of time

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Bioaccumulation potential:
low bioaccumulation potential
Absorption rate - dermal (%):

Additional information

Considering theavailable information on absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion in the various end points and also since the bio-concentration factor (BCF) of sulisobenzone is very low (3.2), the bio-accumulation potential of sulisobenzone appears to be low.
