Description of key information

The bioconcentration factor was calculated from a flow -through fish test that was conducted with 14C labelled substance. The exposure concentration was 92.4 µg/l for 14 days with a subsequent depuration phase of 7 days. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

BCF (aquatic species):
7 dimensionless

Additional information

The bioaccumulation potential of the substance was evaluated in a bioaccumulation study with bluegill sunfish (Lepomis macrochirus) according to accepted scientific principles. The BCF after 14 days of exposure was calculated to be 7 indicating that the substance has a very low bioaccumulation potential. The halflife which was derived from a 7-day depuration phase was calculated to be <1 day.
