Description of key information

Bioaccumulation: Low potential for bioaccumulation.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The requirement to conduct a bioaccumulation study has been waived because the substance has a log Kow <3. In addition, the substance has a high volatility (boiling point = 27°C, measured; vapour pressure = 79500 Pa at 20°C) and its slight solubility in water (water solubility = 19.6 mg/L) which indicate that exposure of the aquatic and terrestrial compartments will be minimal.
