Description of key information

Additional information

Aquatic bioaccumulation

Diglyme has a very low measured Log Kow of -0.36 (see IUCLID Section 4.7) and therefore a bioaccumulation potential (water & sediment) is unlikely.

Terrestrial bioaccumulation

Diglyme has a very low measured Log Kow of -0.36 (see IUCLID Section 4.7) and therefore a bioaccumulation potential in soil is unlikely. In addition Diglyme has a low sorption to sewage sludge and therefore exposure via sludge amendment to agricultural soil can be neglected. Also indirect exposure of soil via deposition of Diglyme from air is unlikely because Diglyme photodegrades rapidly in air.
