Description of key information

Based on read across to the measured log Kow of the main constituent, the substance has a log Kow of -0.7, indicating a low potential to bioaccumulate.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The substance has a log Kow of -0.7 (based on the measured Log Kow of C8 alkane sulfonate, the major constituent) which indicates a low potential for bioaccumulation. It is readily biodegradable and hence rapidly removed from the environment, leading to low concentrations in aquatic organisms. In addition, readily biodegradable substances are likely to be rapidly metabolised in organisms [Guidance on information requirements and chemical safety assessment; Chapter R.7c: Endpoint specific guidance].
