Description of key information

Short description of key information on bioaccumulation potential result: 
From 79 to 95% of orally administered acetate-14C was recovered in the form of 14CO2. Only a small amount of the radioactivity was found in the urine and faeces. The radioactivity recovered from excreta during the first 24-h period was considerably less from the males than from the females. Male rats apparently tend to fix more of the radioactivity in the body tissues, and the acetate carbons were not turned over as rapidly as in the females.
