--------------------------------- BCFBAF v3.00 --------------------------------

Log Kow (experimental): not available from database Log Kow used by BCF estimates: 6.62

Equation Used to Make BCF estimate: Log BCF = 0.6598 log Kow - 0.333 + Correction

Correction(s): Value No Applicable Correction Factors

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
BCF values vary from 862.2 L/kg (based on Arnot-Gobas method) to 10,910 L/kg based on the BCFBAF v3.00 regression-based method.
Executive summary:

BCF values vary from 862.2 L/kg (based on Arnot-Gobas method) to 10,910 L/kg based on the BCFBAF v3.00 regression-based method. These estimates do not consider hydrolysis or biotranformation of the substance, both of which are expected to be high. Actual testing of this substance for BCF is not feasible given the rapid hydrolysis and very low water solubility. The BCF of phenol (the primary hydrolysis product) is 17.5 L/Kg (EU Phenol RAR 2006).
