Description of key information

Due to the low BCF accumulation in organisms is not expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
8 L/kg ww

Additional information

Due to the logPow bioaccumulation is regarded possible. Nevertheless, a model calculation using OASIS BCF base-line v1.04 tool which includes mitigating fators as metabolism, size etc. shows, that the substance undergoes metabolic transformation (BASF 2011). Therefore the calculated BCF of ca. 8 which includes these mitigating factors clearly indicates that the substance is not bioaccumulative. Due to this result a test on vertebrate animals is not deemed neccessary serving animal welfare reasons.
