Description of key information

Additional information

Aquatic bioaccumulation

Tetraglyme has a very low measured Log Kow of -0.84 (see IUCLID Section 4.7) and therefore a bioaccumulation potential (water & sediment) is unlikely.

Terrestrial bioaccumulation

Tetraglyme has a very low measured Log Kow of -0.84 (see IUCLID Section 4.7) and therefore a bioaccumulation potential in soil is unlikely. In addition Tetraglyme 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 Tetraglyme from air is unlikely because Triglyme photodegrades rapidly in air.
