Description of key information

Bioaccumulation: aquatic / sediment

BCFBAF Program of Estimation Programs Interface was used to predict the bioconcentration factor (BCF) of test chemical. The bioconcentration factor (BCF) of test chemical was estimated to be 483.6 L/kg whole body w.w (at 25 deg C),which does not exceed the bioconcentration threshold of 2000, indicating that the test chemical is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain.

Additional information

Bioaccumulation: aquatic / sediment

Predicted data and experimental study of the test chemical were reviewed for the bioaccumulation end point which are summarized as below:

 

In a prediction done using the BCFBAF Program of Estimation Programs Interface was used to predict the bioconcentration factor (BCF) of test chemical. The bioconcentration factor (BCF) of test chemical was estimated to be 483.6 L/kg whole body w.w (at 25 deg C),which does not exceed the bioconcentration threshold of 2000, indicating that the test chemical is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain.

For the test chemical, the bioaccumulation study was conducted on test organism Cyprinus carpio for 60 days for evaluating the bioconcentration factor (BCF value) oftest chemical.Cyprinus carpio was used as a test organism for the study. Range finding study involve the LC50(96 h) 0.198 mg/lonRice fish (Oryzias latipes). The bioconcentration factor (BCF value) of test chemical on Cyprinus carpio was determined to be 460 L/Kg at a conc. of 0.001 mg/l, respectively.

 

On the basis of above results for test chemical, it can be concluded that the BCF value of test chemical was evaluated to beupto 460,which does not exceed the bioconcentration threshold of 2000, indicating that the test chemical is not expected to bioaccumulate in the food chain.
