Description of key information

Using the weight of evidence approach and also considering the fact that phenetole like its analogue chemical anisole is hydroxylated in para position and excreted as glucuronide; the bio-accumulation potential of phenetole appears to be low.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Bioaccumulation potential:
low bioaccumulation potential

Additional information

Phenetole like its analogue chemical anisole is hydroxylated in para position and excreted as glucuronide. Since metabolism in most cases leads to detoxification (no toxic effects were observed with anisole upon oral administration) and the metabolites are excreted out of the living system; based on the read-across principle; bio-accumulation potential of phenetole appears to be low.
