Description of key information

The experimental determined bioconcentration factor (BCF) of m-cresol in fish (Leuciscus idus melanotus) is 20.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
20 dimensionless

Additional information

The bioconcentration factor (BCF) in fish (Leuciscus idus melanotus) was determined with 14C-labelled m-cresol. The fish were exposed to a 0.05 mg/l solution of the tests compound. After the test period of 3 days radioactivity was measured in water medium and fish. A BCF value of 20 were obtained.
