Description of key information

The BCF values for test substance were predicted using regression-based method and Arnot-Gobas based method of the BCFBAF v.3.02 program (EPI SuiteTM v4.11), to be 10 L/Kg w/w (Log BCF= 1) and 1063 L/Kg w/w (Log BCF= 3.026), respectively.

Additional information

The bioaccumulation factor of the test substance was estimated using both regression based and Arnot-Gobas BCF-BAF sub models of BCFBAF v.3.02 program (EPI SuiteTM v4.11). Using the regression-based equation for non-ionic compounds, the predicted BCF value for test substance was estimated to be 10 L/kg ww (Log BCF= 1). Similarly, using the Arnot-Gobas BAF-BCF sub-model, which uses mitigating factors (e.g., growth dilution and metabolic biotransformation’s), the predicted upper trophic BCF value for the constituents was predicted to be 1063 L/kg ww (Log BCF= 3.026) (US EPA, 2022). As test substance was within the descriptor domain criteria, the predictions are considered to be accurate with low uncertainty. Therefore, the BCF prediction for the test substance using BCFBAF model of EPI Suite TM can be considered to be reliable with high to moderate confidence. Overall considering the BCF predictions, the test substance is expected to have a low bioaccumulation potential.
