Description of key information

The BCF value of the 3,5-diiodosalicylic acid is estimated to be 160. This value indicates that 3,5-diiodosalicylic acid is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain because it does not exceed the EPA criteria of 1000.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
3.2 dimensionless

Additional information

In general it is considered that bioaccumulation is the process by which the chemical concentration in an aquatic organism achieves a level that exceeds that in the water, as a result of chemical uptake through all possible routes of exposure. The relationship between bioaccumulation and bio-concentration is that, chemicals that have the potential to bioconcentrate also have the potential to bioaccumulate. So, based on this information the estimated BCF factor of 3,5-diiodosalicylic acid is obtained to be 3.2. This value indicates that 3,5-diiodosalicylic acid is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain because it does not exceed the EPA criteria of 1000.
